spmb [São Paulo-Manitoba] practices in the interstices between art and architecture. Karen Shanski and Eduardo Aquino collaborated for the first time teaching together in 1998, triggering a practice that generated more than 50 projects in the past decade. spmb’s main area of the practice is public art, but expands into education, landscape design, furniture, public spaces, urban design, research, publications, and exhibitions. spmb values collaborative processes and community-oriented projects, which means that ideas develop from dialogic means in order to achieve innovative thinking and ground breaking directions.
As artists and architects we are familiar with the conventions of collaboration with clients, other designers, engineers, city officials, and fabricators, giving us the ability to manage technical specifications of large scale projects and to produce/present all deliverables in an effective, professional and timely manner. We are aware as public artists that we are a part of a larger organizational structure, and we understand that to practice in the interstices of art, architecture and public space means that we do not default to subjective/individualistic primers, but we place collaboration as a major force of the process.
