Views that celebrate the unity between the individual and the place, views that summon any fears of the present, dreamy views, views that include the absence, or who fear the emptyness, views made of landscapes, people, sounds, lights and smells. An opening through the wall to let in the light and time.



"Not only is the amount of light that provides a window ...
It is not simply the amount of noise that it prevents,
when it closes when it opens .. Not just that, right?
(Manuel Tainha)
