Scope and Content
This project series documents the submission for Siza's CODA (Concurso para a Obtenção do Diploma de Arquitecto), for which he submitted his project Casa Rui Feijó in Caminha, Portugal. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number /60. The office assigned the date 1965 to this project.
CODA is the final step for students to obtain their architecture degree. Siza used his preliminary work for the Casa Rui Feijó to develop his submission for his CODA. This project is a vacation house with three bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, living room, service bedroom, exterior annex, garage, lounge and terrace. The original project for the home is also described in this fonds (see project series AP178.S1.1963.PR01).
Documenting this project are plans and elevations. Also included are a small number of photographs and some project documentation.
Material in this series was arranged by Álvaro Siza’s office and has been kept in this order.
