Metamorfose: The ruin, part of the history of the city, is now an area of intervention &, first and foremost, of imagination. It creates a new scenery in Porto and dignifies a space that was once destitute. /

An exhibition design by FAHR 021.3, designed to tell the story of innovation in Oporto. The modular structure is composed of tubular metallic profiles painted gray & green joints.

Constructed only with ventilation ducts – Spiro type. /
