The tribute to Maurício Azeredo was suggested by Alves to the students of FAU USP.
Azeredo, who lives in Goiânia, is a reference in the use of the diversity of wood and his involvement in the project intends to emphasize the importance of preserving species to ensure the maintenance of the forest.
“We studied the Casa Grande and Senzala series, by Maurício, made with slats. They are interspersed in a type of groove that is called a mallet - without a screw or nail, ”said João Monteiro, one of the founders of GEMa. The students used 26 species of wood to build the naturally multicolored piece.
