Siza Sings

Fernando Guerra

Murmurs and whispers. Just architectural thinking revealed.

Photographer Fernando Guerra films with an iPhone the Pritzker laureate and world-renowned architect Alvaro Siza in both a typical and informal moment of his everyday work, in his office.

In Guerra's black and white short movie, Siza sings along to the Beatles' "When I'm sixty-four" song while working on a project. Fernando Guerra, a long-term collaborator of Alvaro Siza, aims at capturing an intimate and even playful situation in the activity of the Portuguese architect.

This video allows the spectators to have a quick glimpse at these "fantastic concerts" that sometimes take place in the architect's office, beyond the amazing things that usually happen here.
