Centre for Environmental Monitoring and Interpretation - Casa dos Cubos

Tomar has the most mysterious and surprising cloisters where the Convent of Christ is an experience of spatiality and esotericism. The work of the Monitoring Centre is not comparable, as it is not a cloister but an inner and reserved experience, a work that plays on the experience of the interior spatiality. This intervention reconfigures the heart of the former industrial building, seeks an outer skin, which is the existing walls, and contaminates its interior with a game of abstract volumes, creating sequence and rhythm. The work gains an unexpected, surprising and enveloping spatial dimension.
