The Talent of Alvaro Siza in Alta de Lisboa

On December 22nd 2005 the signing of the contract between SGAL – Sociedade Gestora da Alta de Lisboa and architect, Álvaro Siza, was finalised. It involves designing the Cultural Centre of Alta de Lisboa by this world renowned Portuguese architect.

The Cultural Centre will be a striking project of reference which will include two theatres and a set of adjacent equipment. It will also include a block of flats near the complex.

The model of the complex reflects, in its formal clean lines and great aesthetic rigour, all the talent of Professor Álvaro Siza and will certainly leave an indelible mark in the urbanisation of Alta de Lisboa. The ceremony took place in an environment of wonderful friendliness, with the confidence that yet another important patrimonial realisation is taking place in this new area within the capital.
