Review :

'A mighty volume that researches and analyses the architect's work throughout his entire career...The book is sumptuous in its contents. With 620 large format pages, it unfolds the evoluation of Siza's projects, largely through drawings. The analysis by Dal Co and Frampton and a huge array of drawings collectively help to comprehend the achievements of the architect.' (Indian Architect and Builder) 'This comprehensive volume documents more than forty years of this acclaimed architect's work, featuring every one of his projects large and small...the documentation of Siza's work is so complete that even those less familiar with the details and intricacies of the design world can trace his professional evolution and development. An exceptional publication in which the buildings have been allowed to speak for themselves, and in doing so have created a pictorial history of the vision and life work of this revered architect.' (The British Bulletin of Publications on Latin America, the Caribbean, Portugal and Spain) 'This book is so comprehensive in its illustrative material that an outsider with no previous awareness of Siza's oeuvre can make fair and balanced judgements on how the architect has evolved, which buildings work, and where he has become tired ... an exceptional book.' (Times Literary Supplement) 'Frampton's massive volume must surely be the most complete collection of Siza's work assembled to date. Chronologically arranged, the elegant photography mixed with detailed plans, elevations and sections allow the reader to appreciate the architect's methods and his aims through four decades of work. The well-written introductory chapter sets Siza's work in the context of 20th century Europe with comparisons to his peers using a number of project examples. Ultimately this is a very satisfying and incredibly comprehensive book that sits nicely on the coffee table but also serves as an excellent reference volume.' (C3)
