About Miguel Pinto Guimarães : In the Brazilian skyline, the projects of Miguel Pinto Guimarães appear integrated to the natural and urban landscape without the pretension to make its proportions compete with the environment. Nature comes first, and soon to follow its simple and clean architecture inserted in a free and assumedly brazilian context. Smooth solutions, finishes and shapes, are part of his production. The result of his work is realized with the minimum of enviromental impact and the maximum of harmony in a unique concept that harmonizes interior and exterior. Miguel, born in 1974, was drawing houses in his notebooks since childhood. Residential projects, hotels, schools, art galleries and restaurants with his signature are spread across the country's main cities, mountains, beach and countryside.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Architecture, Urbanism and Design art the art of bringing beauty and functionality to both public and private spaces. The public space, can be projected, planned, which is very good, but can in the long run lose its vitality by reflecting a time or a current thinking. When public space is organic, shaped by years and years of successive occupations and different uses, architecture also plays a fundamental role in its organization or revitalization. Cities are living organisms and both urbanism and architecture act as remedies, such as a surgical interventions that heal tissues, organs, and reorganize circulations and energies. Architecture, as well as art, also has the function of educating the eye. Only living with the good built art will create tools that refine the aesthetics of the citizen, who will always demand a city with better services, better quality buildings and design of excellence. It is very important to always keep in mind that architecture should privilege the individual. We shall never forget that public or private spaces must serve the human scale.
My experience of twenty five years in architecture brought me simplicity above all. Today I am sure that the best project will always be the simplest. I have the clarity to see if the path a study is following is good or bad and save time when we have to discard it or start over. Another interesting feature that time brings us, is to project on our heads first. When visiting a site, for example, I have already a clear vision of what would be the best project. And this project becomes to grow and to be developed in details inside my thoughts, in bed while sleeping, on daily walks, anywhere. When I sit down to draw, it is completely ready on my mind . Maturation also brings us the certainty that inspiration is not primordial, and if it does not come, as we sit down to project with paper and pencil, something good will emerge out of it.
