Brief description of the project:

What is an abandoned house? What is an house without life?

In a city as porto, where ruins and empty historical buildings are omnipresent, we like the idea of returning to one of this abandoned houses a temporary memorial of the glorious times, when it could fulfil the objective which it was made for.

We filled this house with cutouts that evoke those times. Sounds, paths, images. Promote the discussion.

What results from the union between housing clippings and a space clearly devoid of function?
