REFERÊNCIA #KL :
ruína = manifestação do tempo = memória
O projeto visa transformar este grupo de edifícios que foram anteriormente ocupados por pecuária e produção têxtil, em uma área de descanso. As intervenções no Hotel Hacienda Niop são inseridas discretamente, pisos que se dispõem como tapetes nunca tocam as paredes, telhados metálicos que se apoiam em colunas delgadas respeitam a pré-existência, as lacunas são preenchidas com vegetação.
Aço, pedra, chukum, madeira e vidro fazem parte da gama de materiais escolhidos para a intervenção.
O objetivo do projeto é recordar-nos que o protagonista, nesse caso, não é uma arquitetura que procura chamar a atenção, mas uma que humildemente inclina a cabeça e deixa que seus antepassados adquiram o reconhecimento de que envelheceram de maneira digna.

Haew Narok, the largest Waterfall in Khao Yai National Park, draping over a 150m cliff fall... was rather remarkable. 💦🍃🌿Unfortunately photos can never show great scale, but... it was a tough one to get to, involving plenty of stairs, and leaches along the way 😉😜😱let's not forget that 40C heat and humidity haha... but had the best company around, moaning together is much more fun. 😂✌️️Shortly after the falls we spotted a family of wild elephants too! 😱 How lucky are we?!
The French painter Hubert Robert was born on this day in 1733. He frequently painted real and imagined ruins and contemporary figures interacting with them in a prelude to Romanticism. This is a detail from a Robert at the Worcester Art Museum.
And I am soo proud of these two horses, especially Knud! Olivia and Knud came together from the same man. I was looking for a foal for a while but wanted to wait until I got Olivia, so she could raise the foal. Knud wasn't the kind of foal I wanted to buy. I had no connection when I saw him, but I bought him anyway. I had a lot of regret the first few weeks and through the years. But I am so glad that I bought him! He grew up AMAZING! He was so annoying, constantly bucking and biting. But now he is so sweet! He loves to work, to be with people and to learn something. I never thought he would grow up like this and I do not regret a single moment.
Today I saw a change between Knud and Olivia. Olivia 'adopted' Knud as her own, she always took care of him, Knud looked up to here. But now, while they were cuddling, I saw Knud taking care of Olivia! The roles switched between them. Knud grew up and took over de leadership between them, and Olivia looked all happy and satisfied about it. She did such a good job with him!❤
