Foundation Gabarrón Cristobal Award to Álvaro Siza
June 17, 2010

Alvaro Siza VieiraThe Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza Vieira was awarded the International Prize for Plastic Arts Foundation Gabarrón Cristobal 2010, who wanted to distinguish "the teachings, the international relevance and poetic inspiration" of his work.
The jury’s award highlights the fact that Siza makes architecture “transparent and respectful of the environment where it fits, "praising its ability to develop a “poetic feeling to every building, by working with space and light."
Proof of this highlights, is the building of the University of the Basque Country, which will be completed this year, the Meteorological Center of the Olympic Village in Barcelona (1992), the Galician Center for Contemporary Art in Santiago de Compostela (1993), the Rectorate of the University of Alicante (1997) and the Foundation Serralves (1999).
The award, which reaches it´s ninth edition this year, had 31 candidates competing in various countries.
