Álvaro Siza scoops RIBA Royal Gold Medal

  • Comment

Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza has scooped one of the industry’s most prestigious prizes – the RIBA’s Royal Gold Medal.

The 75-year-old, whose full name is Álvaro Joaquim de Melo Siza Vieira, is among Portugal’s most famous architects and has joined an exclusive Gold Medallists club which includes the likes of Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe.

Although he has yet to build a permanent structure in the UK, the Pritzker Prize-winner designed the Serpentine Gallery’s 2005 summer pavilion in London with long-time collaborator Eduardo Souta de Moura.
