Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza (born 1933) is one of the most influential architects of the past half-century. His most famous work is perhaps the Serralves Museum in his hometown of Porto, his second museum building, following the Galician Center for Contemporary Art, erected in 1997. Low built and horizontal in axis, its white stucco walls are perforated with occasional openings that yield unexpected views of a surrounding garden. As with most of Siza's buildings, the furniture and fittings were also designed by the architect, including lighting fixtures, handrails, doorknobs and all signage. Building materials include hardwood floors and painted walls in gesso with marble skirting in the exhibition halls and marble floors in the foyers. This volume, published in Poligrafa's innovative Museum Building series, reviews the Serralves Museum, a disarmingly intimate space in pronounced contradistinction to much recent museum architecture.

Book Description POLIGRAFA, 2018. Condition: Nuevo. Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza (1992 Pritzker Prize) is one of the most influential architects of the last five decades. His architecture is strongly rooted in the Modern Movement, but incorporates a subjective approach to concept and design, seeking alternative interpretations of Modernism. The Serralves Museum in Porto (Portugal), one of his major works, was the second in a series the architect started with the Galician Center for Contemporary Art and was followed by projects in Italy, Brazil, and Belgium. Unlike much recent museum architecture and the "white box" syndrome, Siza's exhibition spaces are disarmingly intimate on every level.There is an unmediated recognition of the essence of art as individuation. The balance between individuation and collective experience, or the quality of architecture in counterbalance to the atmosphere of intangible light that Siza creates with its gradations and textures, is perishable and enigmatic. In Serralves, as in other museum buildings designed by Siza, the ordering of light, movement, and space has the quasi autonomy of the creatural. Seller Inventory # A000042302
