We decide to open holes. The first hole to enter. And once inside, we did more holes. As many as we needed. We made holes in the walls to pass from a site to other one, in the vaults to have light and to see how the place was, we even made holes to go up to the cover.

A place to do cinema, to play music, place to paint, a place for theatre, with computers and mixing desk to record, a place with an oven to cook ceramics, to reveal photography, to do exhibitions, a place with books and guitars, to see movies, a place to teach and especially, a place to learn.
