Portuguese architect and Pritzker prize-winner Álvaro Siza presents a rare lecture in North America on the design development of the Iberê Camargo Museum in Porto Alegre, a structure noted for its sculptural volumes and tight integration with a coastal escarpment. He discusses the key role of hand sketches in the design process, from massing studies to fine-tuning details.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Alturas de Macchu Picchu: Martín Chambi – Álvaro Siza at work, which documents Siza’s 1995 visit to Macchu Picchu and presents his use of sketches as tools for both documentation and design alongside Martín Chambi’s photos in the CCA Collection.
