Cristina Jorge de Carvalho receives International Award in the US

The project developed for Champalimaud Foundation had the building as its starting point, which was designed by the architect Charles Correa. For the humanization of this space, Cristina Jorge de Carvalho idealized areas where TO BE is the most relevant action and where comfort is essential – spaces which can be more or less intimate and/or formal, thus seizing the human scale of the building.

Cristina Jorge de Carvalho defines the evocation of nature as central to this project, by using material such as wood, straw and linens; as well as through the projections of the garden on the interior walls of the building, creating a continuous dialogue between exterior and interior. The emotional component is highlighted through the color scheme and through the positive emotions expressed through graphic projections at the entrance.

Cristina Jorge de Carvalho said “This award is the international recognition of our work’s quality, creativity and innovation and the proof that Portugal has professionals more than able to compete at a global level.”
The ceremony will be in Los Angeles on April 2013. The list of past winners includes notable names such as Ministy of Design, One Plus Partnership Limited and Simone Micheli.
