Item description for Alvaro Siza: Private Houses by Francesco Molteni & Alessandra Cianchetta...
This richly illustrated book examines the houses designed by Alvaro Siza, one of the masters of contemporary architecture. The 28 villas represent an important aspect of Siza's career, where his distinctive ideas on home design translate into a wider conversation on living today and modern architecture.
Each construction is narrated by Alvaro Siza through his short poetic writings, a technical description, and a series of sketches. Also included are accounts written by Siza's clients, which bear witness to the complex dialogue behind the design of each house. The volume also features two visual essays based on a selection of drawings by Siza and impeccable photographs of his work.
Alvaro Siza is one of today's greatest living architects and the father of the new architectural minimalism. This book will be a must for the bookshelf of architects and students.
