La Hoja

FAHR 021.3
Intervention
Concéntrico 05

 

For  the festival of architecture and design of Logroño in the region of La Rioja, FAHR was challenged to present an intervention in the public space using the plywood as material.

One of these days, in a visit to a carpentry where we have work in progress, the carpenter talked about the way in which the woodwork was transformed by the technological development and by the appearance of the pre-fabrication. In consequence, nowadays wood is hardly used as raw material, but more as leafs or sheets. In the studio we thought that this idea of ​​”leaf” as a manifestation of time could be in the public space of the city of Logrono as space of meeting, convergence, sharing or fun. Thus, in this context material relation, there is also a relation of times between the old and the present, where the actuality is also reflection of the versatility of the public space as space of all for all, space of fruition and social contact.

La hoja is intended to be a piece that people can use spontaneously, without associated rules or codes. A leaf that is a democratic stage of appropriation.

FAHR 021.3

FAHR 021.3 is a creative studio founded in 2012 by Filipa Frois Almeida (Halle, 1981) and Hugo Reis (Guimarães, 1986). Both graduated in architecture at the Escola Superior Artística do Porto, their paths have been marked by intersections between art and architecture.

Filipa Frois Almeida held Erasmus at the Technische Universität Berlin and worked in
architecture offices in Berlin such as LWArchitekten and J. MAYER H. In parallel she studied
photography at the Portuguese Institute of Photography and later at the Imago Galerie Berlin.
Since 2000 she collected in this discipline national and international awards.
Hugo Reis, still in the architecture course, worked in the office Arquitectos Anónimos from
2008 to 2012. He completed in parallel the set of formations in the area of digital fabrication in architecture, acquired tools that later took him to integrate in the Berlin based office J.
MAYER H.

The FAHR 021.3 studio is thus taken over by its founders, in search of an evolving identity
around experimental processes with a special focus on the crossing between art and
architecture in public space.
Since then, the FAHR duo has been distinguished nationally and internationally for a set of
projects that are characterized by their formal and provocative approach such as
Hairchitecture, Metamorfose, Eclipse and NAPPE (2016-19 in Taiwan).

Filipa and Hugo also found HODOS project, which aims to work on landscape crossing the
boundaries of architectural and art intervention, in continuous and open collaboration with
other creative studios.
