ESTUDIODEDOS (AAPEE)

Leticia and Curt met in Seville, and soon after decided to embark on a new project together, founding Estudio DeDos in 2008. Lovers of the plastic and narrative possibilities of space, they were both driven by the desire to share their professional concerns. That is why the intersection between architecture and scenography was and continues to be for them a place of experimentation and coexistence.

It is about telling stories through space, exploring dramatic conflict, seeking emotion through form, light, color, image. In the search for ideas in the creative process they advocate the development of the work both from the individual proposal and from the exchange of thoughts and intuitions.

And hopefully, work hard so that if posible, magic can emerge….
