Conceived in response to the distinctive architecture of the square designed by Alvaro Siza and to its past life as a market place, the intervention in the historical centre of Viseu consisted of a pavilion housing an interactive light installation (Limit). Borrowing from the visual language of cafe awnings, market stalls and fairground booths, points of departure included places of spectacle, diversion and intimacy.
