ANN: Online Access to the Álvaro Siza Archive

ANNOUNCEMENT: Online Access to the Álvaro Siza Archive.

The Serralves Foundation, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, and the Canadian Centre for Architecture announce the launch of the first phase of a collaborative project to provide access to the archive of the Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza.
In 2014, Álvaro Siza donated his extensive archive of built and unbuilt projects since 1958 to three institutions – the Serralves Foundation in Oporto, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon and the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) in Montreal. Through this exceptional case of international institutional collaboration, the three institutions have committed to the establishment of a joint methodology of archival process and description that will allow collective access to Siza’s significant body of work.
As of February 2018, the archival descriptions will begin to become available online in the search engines of the CCA [2], the Serralves Foundation and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. Over the next years, further archival material will be made accessible for research.
The full press release can be accessed here.
