The “Shelter”, designed by Catarina Pinto and build by Terrapalha team. Made with natural materials collected on a trip through Portugal, where the beauty of the landscape influenced the choice of materials and colors. Colorful clay soils, eucalyptus poles and jute cloths.
Comissioned by Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, inside the program “Próximo Futuro” curated by António Pinto Ribeiro. In the end of the exhibition and as part of the artistic performance, the materials were 100% composted, disappearing and fertilizing the soil again, in an infinite cycle of abundance available to the Creation.
