Brick border

Brick border is an architectural installation that propose a new statement to the international jazz festival called Guimarães Jazz.
The proposal intends to emphasize the street wall exploring the paradoxical idea of border curtain which hiding the Baroque garden (composed by classified trees as patrimony) will provoke a sense of discovery and entrance experience over it.
Seasonable we are reaching a new ephemeral entrance to the cultural complex during the festival. It seemed to be an appropriated and worthy place that often aren’t seen and lived, gathering an historical approach to a contemporary jazz festival.
