PROJECT SUMMARY

European Institute of Artistic Investigations

Located in Portugal, this project presents a successful merger of tectonic research and experience. The work deserves merit for the ambition to establish a common research platform between nations of the European Union, thus serving to draw attention to sustainable construction on a continental scale.

Also important is the notion of an ecological architecture that can be transferred to a wide range environmental applications.
