The space of the mirrors | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The mirrors work as the pupils of a within the walls space, a room outdoor from that they observe us.

Fingerprints and coverages | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The architecture is born from the meticulous arrangement of fingerprints and coverages. In occasions one of them will be sufficient.
