Stilt House I
The works intend to produce a desymbolization? of the architectural element. Stilt houses/Lacustra symbolized a social class under the existential limits – therefore this state and atmosphere were associated to this, being first a symbol of poverty. Helped by artistic means, the onlooker can live something different than the real state; anyone can create their own atmosphere, their own poetry, thus choosing from a whole only what is of interest for them, what is specific to them, depending on their state.

The works of art give way to the onlooker’s fantasy, changing the negative, pessimistic atmosphere associated to living in these forms of (primitive) architecture, inviting the onlooker to a contemplation of volumes in dialogue with color, of the full part as compared to what is empty.
