Álvaro Siza: Gateway to the Alhambra

July 23 - January 08, 2017
77 Wynford Dr, Toronto, ON

Explore through models and sketches, renderings, large-scale photographs, and video how Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza developed his design for an innovative structure that includes a courtyard, auditorium, and restaurant. Enjoy architectural objects from the Alhambra’s own collection, and understand why the Alhambra has inspired countless artists and architects since the 14th century. Exclusive to the Toronto installation of this exhibition: a selection of ceramic tiles, marble capitals, intricately carved doors, and other original architectural elements from the Alhambra conjure the magnificent detailing of this World Heritage site.

A must-see for those who love architecture and design.

The exhibition is a joint project of Aedes Architecture Forum, Berlin and the Patronato of the Alhambra and Generalife, Granada, in partnership with the Aga Khan Museum, Toronto.
