A Pool in the Sea

A Pool in the Sea, focuses on Siza’s famed Piscinas de Mares (Pools on the Beach) in Leca de Palmeira, Portugal; a pool situated within and built into the rocks aligning the Atlantic Ocean’s coast, which was completed in 1966. The book contains an interview with the author, by famed historian Kenneth Frampton. The book documents a journey of his architectural life. The images are hanging on the top of the page, they are going up and down like the water in the sea. The book has a documentaire presence by the photography of Vincent Mentzel. In between the pages there are bronze pages that inserting questions related to subjects he deals with. The linen cover is printed with a rasterised image of the sea, because of the raster it look embroidered.
