This singular work is one of the most outstanding buildings of the last decade in the oeuvre of Álvaro Siza, Pritzker Prize recipient in 1992. On a high plain by the river in the Roman city of Chaves, deep in the interior of his home country, Siza has built the Nadir Afonso Museum. Blending the modernity of elevation o the ground (and above the river’s flood plain) and a vernacular indented plan, the building reveals the exceptional mastery of this architect and the very condition of contemporary architecture.
