Three Alvaro Siza Buildings

I recently visited Porto and had the opportunity to explore three Alvaro Siza buildings; the Porto Architecture School, Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art and the Swimming Pool at Leca de Palmeira.

There are some photos below showing how amazing these buildings are – the architecture school in particular was a great experience – you can go in a explore the building and no one is interested in what you are doing.

The best thing about these buildings is contrast in the quality of light that is achieved with the smallest openings in some areas against bright, well lit areas from large expanses of glass.  Delightful buildings.
