09/11/2016 - Its liquid: álvaro siza, sacro

Gallery 2bis, MAXXI, Roma
From 9 November 2016 to 26 March 2017

The best architect is time.
Álvaro Siza

Great inclined walls, a sinuous layout, ample spaces alternating with others that are deliberately restricted in dialogue and contraposition with those of the museum: this is how the great Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza has imagined the exhibition featuring drawings, projects and objects that reveal his relationship with the sacred.
Projects with a religious nature are flanked by others in which the theme of religiousness is treated in a less direct fashion: religious objects designed for the Holy Father alternate with figurative drawings and architectural projects in Italy and elsewhere, while on the walls are projected photos of a number of his projects taken by six international photographers.
