Siza at MoMA

I'm a bit too tired to put some thoughts together on this now, but here are plenty of photos of Alvaro Siza's lecture last night at the Museum of Modern Art, organized with the Architectural League of New York. His talk focused on one building, the Foundation IberĂȘ Camargo in Porto Alegre, Brazil. As can be seen, Siza spent lots of time talking about his sketches and design process, before looking at some precedents from his past then construction shots and photos of the completed building. At the end he spoke with MoMA curator Pedro Gadanho; the lecture was prefaced by comments from Barry Bergdoll and a history of Siza's architecture from Kenneth Frampton.
