agenda cultural

Fabião has been focusing on the integration of the fields of art, architecture and design as well as on the expansion of her perception throughout the various cultures she experienced during her life and career

Diagonal System, the Transitio Series, Highlighting the Line to the realization of the Cité de L’Océan et du Surf in Biarritz, France, a collaboration with Steven Holl Architects. The Cité de l’Océan et du Surf was designed to raise awareness of oceanic issues and explore educational and scientific aspects of the surf and sea as well as their role upon our leisure, science, and ecology. It is comprised of a museum building, exhibition areas, and a plaza.

“When I try to find a connection between my art and my architecture and here specifically with the Cité, I find a search for what is essential, the search for a core element as defining in the work. The two sides of the great curve (The limit in-between – this intersection is the sea’s profundity when it touches the open sky), its dynam­ics express indispensable qualities of the ocean and the surf.” S.F. 2011.
