You met SIZA! That's great! Your comment was very important because it's excellent that you know his work… if you look at the photos from this house (and because it's not “FLASHY/LOUD” architecture) you might not realize that you are in the presence of something very special.
The Serpentine - where you met him - was a very special place for another portuguese artist: Paula Rego, the painter!

Lumierenatural!! :)

That's fantastic what you mentioned about your son... Congratulations to you both!!

The Faculty building is in Porto and marks the return of the architect to his home town... in terms of work, because for many years he was doing projects all over the world but not here! It's the good price of fame :)

StoryTaylor, indeed... it's great to check the passing of seasons there because all that flora changes from day to day... and month to month... in shapes... colors... :)
