Text description provided by the architects. The idea for the Architecture’s faculty temporary bar for the Oporto academic week 2011 rises from a small concept: to use a material that was translucent and combined texture and colour. A material that works like a skin upon a pre existent metal structure reutilized from the past temporary bars. With only one week to be built and a low budget, the object must settle as an icon, calling peoples attention, releasing the interior light into a contrast game of shadows and colour bounce.

Therefore we’ve been lead to the Polyurethane foam. Projected, the foam assumes many kinds of occupation and, when in contact to light, the shadows began to play with colour. The static becomes movement and the foam, that normally is hide as an isolation material, is now the centre of the attentions.

It is, for us, interesting to watch the development the foam along the time exposure to the elements. What first is a pale yellow skin becomes a light yellow and along the drying process the foam becomes solid. The curiosity rises when touching the foam surface, realizes that it is soft and smooth. The main objective it was accomplished, the idea was got form and the boarder of a material that gather all those characteristics was cross.
