Born in Portugal in 1933, Álvaro Siza has established himself as one of the most influential architects in the world – particularly when it comes to public housing. He initially wanted to be a sculptor, which was viewed as bohemian and irresponsible, so he began studying architecture. Architecture, he explains, is a luxury for the well-to-do; but for him, modern architecture became greatly influential after World War II, with the reconstruction of Europe. After several successful projects in Portugal, Siza, an expert in his field, traveled to Germany, Italy, and other countries to lead public-construction projects. Siza views architecture as a means of continuity and an art form that passes from generation to generation, with each generation learning from the previous one. This film is a magical hour spent with an intelligent and pleasant man, who always has a cigarette in his hand.
