LEÇA SWIMMING POOL

PHOTOS BY NICOLÒ GALEAZZI

The swimming pool by Álvaro Siza at Leça da Palmeira opened 15 years before Nicolò Galeazzi was born. When Álvaro Siza received the Pritzker Prize, Galeazzi was just 5 years old. In spite of this gap, the relationship between the “Old Master” and the young architect-photographer couldn’t be closer. Galeazzi manages to forcefully tell us – yet again – about the extraordinary ability to listen, discover and reveal the context that is the unique, inimitable characteristic of Álvaro Siza's architecture.
