The work of the Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza (*1933 in Matosinhos) illustrates the development of architecture from modernity through to the twenty-first century. The architectural legacy of the European avant-garde of the twenties and thirties is as much alive in Siza’s work as are the transformations it has undergone since the sixties.This book assembles fourteen of his most representative projects from the last ten years that testify to the intensity and unconformity of the architect’s celebrated lifework. Maintaining the premises which have always characterized his work—the delicacy of the contours, reference to the location, the subtle treatment of space—this volume shows Álvaro Siza with a renewed joy for experimenting and an admirable capacity for reworking his own legacy. Modern Redux contains the most recent structures designed by Siza, which surprise, seduce, and bear themselves out within a contemporary context.
