Enormous concrete piles that structure some residential buildings in Belo Horizonte were converted into substance for urban inquiries. These monumental voids, totally under-used, were then connected to the city as a theater stage for Armatrux, a street theater company.

Topographical Amnesias II

The play Nomads, by theater company Armatrux, was another phase of the Topographical Amnesias project. The event was an architectural intervention which transformed a previously under-utilized space with airs of a trash dump. Architecture, landscaping and environmental reclaiming intermingle and work as an urban set for the theater play.
