Founded in 2016 by the duo of architects Ana P Ferreira and Pedro M Ribeiro, united by their common practice of architecture and the arts. It is from the island of Madeira that they seek inspiration from the past to draw the future.
In an intense exploration of opening pathways where ideas are drawn and constructed, they manifest themselves through collages, models of different scales and materials, abstract or non-abstract drawings. A contemporary diaspora that is based on close human relationships and a quest for the construction of ideas on various scales. This is further amplified through academic pursuits, research, conferences, competitions, exhibitions, and scenography.
