“ALFAROSIZA. Ideas encontradas” Álvaro Siza – Andreu Alfaro in Valencia

The origin of this exhibition was born in 2015, during a visit to the studio of Álvaro Siza, where the architect Fran Silvestre, together with the master and postgraduate students of MArch. Architecture and Design, presented the work of Andreu Alfaro.

Those who were there say that it was a magical moment to see Siza looking at each of Alfaro’s works and how he compared Alfaro’s ideas and sculptures with his own. We all witnessed that Siza did not know until then the work of the sculptor. This lucky chance allowed to present an architect who wanted to be a sculptor and a sculptor who wanted to be an architect.

During the subsequent trips to Oporto with the students, we were able to follow the evolution of this project that this week will finally materialize in an exhibition organized in five sections and executed by studying the work of Siza and Alfaro in the field of drawing, sculpture and architecture. The exhibition will remain open to the public with free access until the month of October at the Espai Alfaro de Godella.
