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).

The following text by Pedro Gadanho was originally published in Portuguese in Portugal's Diário Expresso.

The most awaited event in the architecture world begins this week: the opening of the Venice Biennale. Thousands of participants, journalists, and invited guests will flood the fantastical Italian city to take the pulse of the discipline -the nations' representations, the novelties, the state of the art. For this, the 14th edition of the Biennale, the artistic direction of Rem Koolhaas has raised great expectations: the architect behind Casa da Música is, after all, the ultimate provocateur of an architectural stardom that's ever more predictable.
