The modular structure is composed of tubular metallic profiles painted gray and green joints. This structure supports the opaque tensioned fabric (for the definition of spaces), its own LED illumination and diffused lighting of the space. The structure is suspended, except for the two tops.
Here, the structure is supported on the floor so that one can easily convert immersive room and auditorium into individual exhibition modules for varied uses.

A estrutura modular é composta de perfis metálicos tubulares pintados de cinzento e juntas verdes. Esta estrutura suporta o tecido opaco tensionado (para a definição dos espaços, a sua própria iluminação LED e luz difusa do espaço. A estrutura é suspensa, exceto nos dois topos.
Aqui, a estrutura é suportada no chão para que seja fácil a conversão imersiva da sala e auditório em exposições modulares individuais para diversas utilizações.

1st Part
The goal is to show the manufacturing process which this project required and, at the same time, how complex and demanding it is. The process required the use of different techniques, such as the production of fabrics, locksmith, painting, sewing, and assembling parts.
During the process, Building Pictures noticed that besides the images, the sounds were capable of identifying each process. Thus, the audio is quite raw during the first part of the film and, as the project acquires form, the sounds transform into a melody.

1ª Parte
O objectivo é mostrar o processo de manufactura envolvido neste projecto e ao mesmo tempo como é complexo e exigente. O processo requereu o uso diferentes técnicas como a produção de tecidos, serralharia, pintura, cozer e montagem de peças.

2nd Part
During this moment, the film takes us to the workplace of the architectural work and, through time lapses, we become spectators of a sinuous dance between bodies and materials, which result in a built place.

2ª Parte
Neste momento o filme leva-nos até ao estaleiro de obra e através de timelapses, assistimos a uma dança sinuosa de corpos e material, dando lugar a um espaço construído.

The film ends in the exterior and explores the relationship between the light of the space and the exterior and its confrontation with the bustling urban environment, which is characteristic of the Porto city center.
