At the same time, a new special installation titled “Camera Con Vista” was also presented, which will open the Architect Show. The project was designed and curated by the CQS team in collaboration with Luun (lighting design) and Eva Papadimitriou (landscape design). Referring to this project, Miguel Queda, co-founder of CQS, emphasized, “This year’s installation reflects the relationship between advanced materials and design with innovative architectural design. These elements serve as an invitation to architects, designers, and professionals to explore new possibilities and transcend traditional design boundaries. Six rooms, six locations where visitors can explore different spaces and their potentials.”
