The workshop created by Mickaël Martins Afonso in 2016 is a reflection on a multidisciplinary career, cradled by studies of visual arts, applied arts, space design, and last but not least architecture, thus enclosing a journey rich in human and intellectual experiences. He collaborated for several years with Brochet Lajus Pueyo, an architecture company in Bordeaux, attested by his professional commitment as project manager. Meanwhile, he has kept on his research work on photography, design, carpentry, prototyping, and artistic installations, adding a complementary practice to architecture. He has nourished a particular look, on the reports of scales as well as on details. This spirit of openness is felt today in his practice. The workshop works on different forms and scales of design, such as interior design, furniture creation, leading to the realization of the object. A new project is meant to reflect on the practices, to release a global thought of the inhabited space, but also to answer more precisely specific requests from each customer and thus to be able to create singular places tailored to their needs and desire, to each way of living and to actually live the architecture. In 2016, Mickaël Martins Afonso won the jury prize at the Festival des Architectures Vives de Montpellier, which led to an invitation to the Taipei Landscape Public Art Festival "Seeing the Unseen" exhibition, organized by the "Blue Dragon Art Company" in Taiwan, to present his award-winning project "Head in the Clouds » In 2017, the workshop was invited with the collective SHALUMO to produce an architectural installation during the festival Concentrico 3 in Logroño, Spain.
