I must be on an architecture jag this week

Alvaro Siza originally designed this Porto, Portugal area building as a private home. It has been transformed into an art museum. The landscape is as impressively serene as the building. He was also commissioned to do some seaside pools in the Porto area. I am surprised I don't have any photos. I will try to find some. Be back in a moment.

I found them . . . . I give you . . . the pools at Leça.
Built in the 1960's, the pools and entrance sit entirely below the level of the highway so as to not interfere with the view of the Atlantic.
