Restoration of Fonte da Burga in Caldas de Reis | Luis Gil+Cristina Nieto

To be employed at the time and at the goods and architectures that others thought and constructed before that we, it has an after-taste to collaborate with these other architects who already are not.

Restoration of the Glez Barros Pantheon | Luis Gil+Cristina Nieto

Drawings of work, of the mental place to the final reality | Luis Gil Pita

The tables and the architecture | Luis Gil Pita

Is table an architecture? Not, but yes in others some senses. It is not an architecture, because it is not a question of any enclosure or closed domain and to cutlery, it is clear.

Interior reform for a study of piano and plastic arts. Durán Arufe-Takebe Office | Luis Gil+Cristina Nieto

“Seeing is to understand. Since it is not understood any more than with the reason.” Ignacio Ramonet. Deepening and knowledge demand to be, stability, a sufficient time and a tidy reflection.

Carles Martí and María Moliner´s book | Luis Gil Pita

You will excuse me and especially to whom in the bottom I dedicate these brief words, the not scientific at all approximation of these lines to the “written architecture” by Carles Martí.
