House of Architecture, Matosinhos
The Casa de Arquitectura is grounded on the existing ruins and their rehabilitation, through an investigation on the historical context of the industrial buildings.The main objective of this project was to re-establish the balance of forces between Nature and the human spirit. In addition to seeking balance between the different intervening forces, we wanted it to be visible and manifest itself in all its veracity. We believe that matter should, in this particular instance, be perceived in both space and time.
