“Any project that has to do with improving people’s life seems very interesting to us. Public spaces and streets are places for everybody. That’s why they’re the most fascinating places. By modifying little things in the urban space, as designers, we can contribute to making things easier, more comfortable or simply more interesting for the common people. Having had the opportunity to work for public hospitals and for public transport, for instance, we can say that they are definitely the most gratifying kind of projects you can have.”
