Faculty of Architecture do Porto
Álvaro Siza | Website | 1996 | Visitor Information
Built between 1985 and 1996 by the Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza, a former student of the school, the work consists of 10 different volumes, each one with its own unique personality, but which find a common identity through color, opacity and constructive solutions. These volumes, whose project activity is lacking inspiration, have a strong relationship with the natural environment of the city of Porto. It is precisely these openings, along with the solar protections, where Siza creates differentiation and movement between the volumes.The work plays quite a bit with right and oblique angles, especially in the desired visuals and proportions.
