This watchful, sensorial design allowed for the creation of specific settings for each artwork – through the viewer’s lens they can be spatially perceived in different ways or discovered in new formats. Presented in a non-chronological order, a celebration of twenty years and twenty artists can now be rediscovered through a ruin which only appears to us at sunset.
Diogo Passarinho Studio
D_P_S – Diogo Passarinho Studio (2013) is an architectural practice split between Berlin and Lisbon.
