UPdates, part 2:materials

A walk through Porto with Malcolm Campbell ... old carvings/assemblys in wood, stone and iron from my home town ...after Malcom went to Manila´s to carve some bonzers!!!! they're almost ready!!!!!!

Thank you Malcom!

the office goes concrete searching...we are making stuff with pre cast concrete and some béton thubs there reminds me of Manila's half pipe... Above is a project of Serôdio Furtado associados...we love concrete but we don´t understand why people insist on covering it with drywall and ceiling... that is probably the best phase of the building to us...we have to wait for it to turn into a ruin to see some core architectural values shine again...

more surf on the break....
