Working with AAmatters has given me the opportunity to go beyond conventional means of thinking on my design practice. Sometimes it was intense, some others was challenging, but all of it has been extremely interesting and educational.
The reason why working with AAmatters has been a unique and enjoyable experience so far is that, we grasp the fact that each project demands a different approach. In great collaboration with the multidisciplinary and diverse team of AAmatters, we constantly research new and/or redefine known methods and processes along the way to our proposals.
