The world of little things

This picture has an amazing story…as you guys can see it is another view from our fietzerria final party at the afsluitdijk…it was taken by someone who was driving by…but the most incredible thing is not what the photo shows, but what it actually represents!

Some weeks ago i got in touch with Arn…he call me to chat about pizza project…arriving at his place i discovered he was as enthusiastic about ovens as me…always experimenting and trying new things we had a great morning thinking and discussing about all the secrets from the clay, base and mobility!

I can say i’ve got some pizza oven freaks, but they are all in Brasil or in some distance farm in the middle of the jungle. I never could imagine someone so close by with the same passion and motivation.

In the end of the morning Arn came with this picture…he told me all his friends overload him with pictures and references about ovens ( I have the same issue:)…and one of them catch me on action at the most distance point I ever been with my bike. Crazy this world of little things…some times it looks like how specify are your interests how wide becomes your world. The only thing we have to take care of is choosing something reallyyyyy nice to be interested on!

GOOOOO pizza ovens! YEAH!

Fellow architects…

Since I started this pizza project I had this goal: Cooking and building an oven at the architecture school in the Netherlands. It was this kind of dream bringing my stories and experiences for my fellow dutch architects, letting them fell a little bit of the brazilian way of making it. And guess what…after so much pizzas for friends, children, sportive clubs, eco-fans, rich people, business crew and cycling dudes at the afsluitdijk, I finally realized my dream.

I was ask to cook pizzas for the start of the academic year at the Rotterdam Architecture Academy…Located at Heijplaat it was quite an adventure getting there in first place…after a 6 hours trip from Den Haag to Heiplaat divided in two days i got there…and moments later i saw lot’s of architecture students discovering the mysteries of the pizza cooking…quite strange for me used to assume that all architecture students are more then welcome with the pizza skills( in Brasil they are!)

But what i saw that day was where architecture and pizzas comes together…the both are not products…they are concepts…and you can fill them up as you like:) YEAH!

Thanks Alexa for the opportunity and Maarten for that help bringing the bike to Heijplaat and bringing it back(this time with the boat!)
