The collaboration between Ricardo Cruzes, artist, and Rui Vargas, architect, resulted in plastic forms structured by four hands, not easily detecting where the trace of one ends and the creative aspect of the other begins. However, they do not completely erase the marks of confrontation and the awareness of the difference in knowledge, experiences, methodologies and professional paths of each one, formulating an important metaphor of the meeting of cultures, as they prove the constructive fecundity of the tension between two (or more ) individual parts, which results in a third element, an “other”, with its own characteristics and innovative meanings, greater than the addition A + B.

In the contemporary world, everything gains new meanings with each new […]
