Moving pictures: Alvaro Siza Vidago Palace Hotel & Spa

Produced by Architectural Video, the story of a building is described in a day


Long-revered as a spa retreat among Europe's elite - who came to benefit from the famed mineral waters of Vidago - Vidago Palace is a legend reborn. Like in most of Siza Vieira's designs the stand out feature of this project is the intimate relation between the previous Beaux-arts Hotel and the Spa expansion.

Architectural Video

Architectural Video is a group of filmmakers and architects dedicated to providing a new, fresh perspective on filming architecture. The group focuses on the buildings themselves, letting the architecture speak for itself without the interferences of people or noise. Through this the team picks shots and details that they feel emblematic of a particular project or architect.
