SUMMARY is an architectural studio based in the Science and Technology Park of University of Porto, Portugal. Seeking the balance between pragmatism and experimentalism, SUMMARY develops building systems assuming the optimization of time and physical resources as the core theme of its practice. In 2016, SUMMARY was selected to present the work “INFRASTRUCTURE-STRUCTURE-ARCHITECTURE” at the main exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia.

Tomé Capa works in two main areas: architecture (as founding member in Limit Studio) and art. His work focuses on the creation of installations of an artistic and architectural character. Limit Studio is an architectural studio that presents itself as irreverent, creative and rigorous, always seeking the limit in solving problems of a spatial and constructive nature. For this challenge, Tomé Capa and Limit Studio worked as partners but at the same time as two different entities.
