Serigraphy Alhambra, Álvaro Siza
Architect Alvaro Siza, in 2011, won a competition to create a new access and visitor center for the Alhambra complex. A set of drawings and sketches, models and also five films that show visitors what can be considered one of the most important challenges in his career.
In carrying out this project, Álvaro Siza was particularly influenced by his visits from an early age to Granada, more specifically to the Alhambra, mainly due to the particular fusion between the natural and artificial landscape, the unique spatial qualities of its patios, the singular articulation of volumes, the importance of light and shadow games.
Álvaro Siza is one of the main architects of the 20th century, and one of the names with which Portugal is associated in any part of the world, winner of the Pritzker Prize in 1992. It was in 1991 that Álvaro Siza was invited to design the Museum of Contemporary Art in Serralves, which opened in 1999.
In 2019, he completed the architectural project for the Casa do Cinema Manoel de Oliveira and in 2021 the restoration and adaptation of the Casa de Serralves. Maintaining, until today, a collaborative relationship with the institution and its programming.
