Álvaro Siza's Archives May Soon Belong to Canada

The archives of Álvaro Siza, whose drawings, sketches, and models have been exhibited in the most renowned cultural institutions around the world, may soon be transferred to the Canadian Centre for Architecture (Centre Canadien d'Architecture, CCA) in Montreal.

The architect confirmed on Wednesday to Portuguese paper PÚBLICO that he has been "in talks" with the CCA, as well as other un-named institutions from different countries, in order to "decide the future" of his archives.

Fernando Guerra's Stunning Images of Álvaro Siza's Most Inspiring Works

Today, the renowned Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza turns 81. To celebrate, we've rounded-up some of Siza's most inspiring works, all courtesy of Fernando Guerra and Sergio Guerra - FG + SG.

Siza was born in Matosinhos, Portugal, in 1933. His first work was built in 1954, before Siza had even completed his studies at the School of Fine Arts at the University of Porto (now Faculty of Architecture, University of Porto - FAUP).
