Álvaro Siza Vieira Awarded the Golden Lion 2012
July 1, 2012

Alvaro Siza Vieira Leone d’oro VeneziaÁlvaro Siza Vieira has been chosen to be the recipient of the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement of the 13th International Architecture Exhibition – Common Ground (Venice, Giardini and Arsenale, August 29th – November 25th, 2012).
The decision is made by the Board of la Biennale di Venezia, chaired by Paolo Baratta, under Director David Chipperfield who presented the following motivation:

“I am equal in size to whatever I see,
not hemmed in by the size I am”

(Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet)

“It is difficult to think of a contemporary architect who has maintained such a consistent presence within the profession as Álvaro Siza. That this presence is maintained by an architect that lives and works at the extreme Atlantic margin of Europe only serves to emphasise his authority and his status.”
