    This double issue of El Croquis takes a deep dive into the recent work of Álvaro Siza, the celebrated Portuguese architect whose influence spans decades and continents. Covering the years 2015 to 2022, it showcases 22 projects that exemplify Siza’s continued evolution and mastery of space, light, and materiality.

    Highlights of Siza’s Recent Work:

    • Refined Minimalism: While retaining his signature minimalist aesthetic, Siza’s recent projects exhibit a heightened refinement and attention to detail. The Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT) in Lisbon, Portugal, exemplifies this with its sleek concrete volumes and carefully orchestrated interplay of light and shadow.

    • Poetic Play with Light: Natural light remains a crucial element in Siza’s work, used to sculpt spaces and evoke emotion. The Chapel of Saint Joseph in Bruges, Belgium, demonstrates this beautifully, with light filtering through slender concrete fins, creating a sense of spiritual serenity.

    • Contextual Sensitivity: Siza’s buildings engage deeply with their surroundings, respecting and enhancing existing landscapes and urban fabrics. The New Chiado Museum in Lisbon, Portugal, seamlessly integrates into the city’s historic center, offering both a new cultural space and a respectful dialogue with the past.
