Designed and built by Alvaro Leite Siza Vieira, the Fez House is located in Porto, Portugal. This home and studio space, 'the work of my life' according to Siza, took 12 years to complete, assembling the site, designing the house, and then building it. The home's size is almost statuesque with its lines and angles. To do architecture it’s necessary a client, a promoter. When I realized, in certain moment of my career that to continue my path I would need to occupy that role too, I didn’t hesitate. I conciliated objectives, interests, goals, I pursued an ideal and I achieved a dream. I also had the need to be, in this work, supervisor, coordinator and project director, in an organization in direct administration. I started this work in 2004 and I finished it in early of 2005. The construction begins in February of 2006 and was concluded in July of 2010.
