Álvaro Siza Vieira / Time Dialogues / 4works



























































Four interactive videos, four works of Pritzker Architecture Prize winner 1992 architect Álvaro Siza: Tides Swimming Pools; Malagueira; Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea; Santa Maria Church.

“The deconstruction of perspective underlying this video, heightened by its soundtrack, serves to begin an interpretation of the multiplicity of approaches created by the architecture featured. This is no absent, analytical or transparent vision. This is a perspective touching and touched by the poetic structurs that itself represents a fundamental input into the work of Álvaro Siza.” Dr. Arch. Jorge Spencer

The narrative itself is established by the user/reader through combining and interacting with 170 clips of around a minute lenght.
