Álvaro Siza Wing

Client: GOP – Gabinete de Organização e Projectos

Architecture: Álvaro Siza Vieira

Description: The Álvaro Siza Wing of the Museum of Contemporary Art is located inside the Serralves Foundation, in Porto, and comprises three floors, including a basement and two exhibition spaces, allowing the Foundation to increase the exhibition area by about 40%, with new interconnected and adjustable exhibition rooms. For this building, constructive solutions and noise minimisation measures were designed based on the comfort, concentration and quietness requirements for cultural buildings of this nature, thus providing the best possible acoustic conditions for its visitors.
