Alvaro Siza: Serralves Foundation, Porto 1995-99

This Museum sits in a beautifully maintained park with views framed from the windows of its generously proportioned galleries. The sober monumentalism of its minimal detailing creates a sequence of abstract vistas that lead the visitor toward the sky-lit spaces for contemporary art and out into the garden. Here the white volumes stand as mute counterparts to the varied forms of a nature educated to be natural.
