In the year 2008 we felt the critical mass of energy, will and frustration to start our own business. We wanted to take charge of our design process and test our abilities in business even though we had no commissions guaranteed. We managed to survive by designing pig farms, industrial buildings and illegal construction legalizations. In the meantime we do architectural competitions.
