I recall the invitation … some curtains. I thought of fabric … I interpreted the place and refused the idea’s immediacy… I went fishing to other seas … maybe mine…. most architectural … most physical, focused on solemn and serious subjects as the walls of the Great Hall of the São João National Theatre. Maybe because of this reason, too, it could not have been! In this space designed by Marques da Silva, I thought I would hear old words, texts from other places and someone from behind says, “it’s just utilitarianism, ma’am. What kills us all, kills us all, ma’am.”
Hundreds of meters of steel wire built, like this one, another place of knowledge and light!
