This family, a couple of physicians with a son who currently aspires to be a soccer player of FC Porto is reflected on the outdoors. On one side the typical grass of a soccer field with a goal, and on the other side, a transition to a crop field. This house describes the change of environment of the territory, the migration of families and their expectations for the future.
