....Content..Contéudo....

....No planalto à beira-rio, na cidade romana de Chaves, no interior do seu país natal, Siza constrói o Museu Nadir Afonso. Entre a modernidade de o elevar do chão (sobre as águas) e o vernacular recorte da sua planta, o edifício revela a excepcional maestria deste arquitecto e própria condição contemporânea da arquitectura.

..On a high plain by the river in the Roman city of Chaves, deep in the interior of his home country, Siza has built the Nadir Afonso Museum. Blending the modernity of elevation of the ground (and above the river’s flood plain) and a vernacular indented plan, the building reveals the exceptional mastery of this architect and the very condition of contemporary architecture.
