Text from architect Miguel Arruda:

With Habitable Sculpture architect Miguel Arruda transports a formal memory of one of his early sculptures from the 60s to the present day and gives it the scale and spatial experience of architecture.

The Modulo exposed in Gallery Diario de Noticias, in 1968 is now subject to an extension 56 times its original size. This new volume gives a certain level of habitability, which allows him to interpret the concept of Habitable Sculpture. Both physical object and tactile values of its first volumes, are today exercised on the exterior and interior. It is precisely this physical experience that the author intends to share with the public. Under the construction point of view a metal structures extracted from the initial module, now computerized, responds structurally to the new volume setting. This structure, is waiting to receive different layers of material such as cork, with a view to opaque covering, or plant elements, with a certain level of transparency.

In either cases, realizes the definition of an interior space, while producing sensory different situations. The Olives Garden, in Lisbon, is thus an area where visitors can live the part, experiencing a four-dimensional projecting ownership of art, art as place and place as the concept of Habitable Sculpture.
