Does anyone know a lot about Siza? Specifically his concept behind the curve wall of the Aveiro University Library in Portugal, why did he had it curved, does it have to do with the relation to the topography of the river or are there anymore concept behind it? Also, the entrance part, where there is this huge blank white wall infront of the entrance? What is that all about (concept and reason behind it and usage of it)?

I've done some research about the building but no documents behind those questions I've asked above. Anyone who knows something about it, please answer.
