Siza Self Portrait

“Drawings – landscapes, portraits, and trip sketches – have always kept me busy. I don’t think that it has a direct relation with architecture but it is a good way to develop acuity of vision. There are two different words in portuguese that mean “to look” and “to see and understand” (olhar and ver). The tool of an architect is to be able to see”.
