The Royal Gold Medal this year has been awarded to Álvaro Siza and as part of our 175th anniversary celebrations, is being presented by Her Majesty the Queen at a private audience at Buckingham Palace today. This is only the fourth time the medal has been presented by the Queen in person, so it really is an extra special occassion.

Check out some of Siza’s work.

Jonathan Glancey of The Guardian tells us why Siza is a laudable, if underrated winner.

Listen to Siza on BBC Radio 3 last night.
