My story with the pizza oven has started back in Brazil, at my first year in the architecture university.
In our first lesson at school, The teacher showed properties of structures and how easily they can perform for our interest.
Then with the bricks in our hands and the clay in our feet we started our first building! We finished in the same day, dirty with mood and laughing with the result.
When they started to cook,nobody was interest for the oven anymore, but just eating pizza.
Confused, i ask him precisely what was the message he wanted to teach,
and he told me
“Architecture is where the function, technic and art gets together for our purposes in life.”
