Abstract:
The Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza practices free hand drawing along with his architectural design work. A sample of his large graphic work is analyzed, in an effort to characterize it, in terms of its predominant guidelines and close influence. Extended in time, parallels are found with his wife work, the artist Maria Antónia Siza (1940-1973).

Keywords: Álvaro Siza / drawing / art / architecture / Maria Antónia Siza.
