ÁLVARO SIZA DONATION TO THE CANADIAN CENTRE FOR ARCHITECTURE

Montréal, 24 July 2014 – Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza, recipient of the Pritzker Prize, has donated a large part of his architectural archive to the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montréal (CCA). In a statement this week, Siza announced his decision to place the material in the care of the CCA in order to foster discussion and dialogue in a research-oriented context. As one of the world’s foremost international architecture collections, the CCA offers a unique environment dedicated to the study and presentation of architectural thought and practice. Álvaro Siza’s work can be studied in the context of the international archives of Peter Eisenman, Arthur Erickson, John Hejduk, Gordon Matta-Clark, Cedric Price, Aldo Rossi, James Stirling, as well as Pierre Jeanneret, Abalos & Herreros, Foreign Office Architects, and others housed at the CCA.
