Serralves Museum Porto







Lest you all think I am a traditionalist, here is the Serralves Museum in Porto Portugal. The building was designed by Alvaro Siza, the Pritzker Prize winning architect. The white stucco building is incredibly elegant with a minimum of detail, just space and shape. Even the signage made from cut out plywood is thoughtfully executed.The gardens are quite lovely in a very minimalist manner. The parterre garden is from the original 1920s house on the property.
