A Viagem Impossível
"Each drawing suggested the next, the hand moved by memory", said Álvaro Siza Vieira about A Viagem Impossível. This is a beautiful bellows notebook, about six metres long, which opens into mythological and biblical narratives portrayed by the unique strokes of award-winning architect Álvaro Siza Vieira. The book, accompanied by texts by the architect himself, the art critic Bernardo Pinto de Almeida and the renowned Italian designer Enrico Baleri, comes in a luxurious Canadian cedar box also designed by Siza Vieira. A unique and unmistakeable object: in this project, Siza Vieira emerges as a compulsive designer as never before revealed. A unique work limited to 200 numbered copies signed by the author, winner of the Pritzker Prize, the "Nobel" prize for architecture that distinguishes multiple qualities such as talent, vision, and commitment.
