Fig Projects interviews Nader for Interwoven on his appreciation of Aires Mateus and their practice. “Their projects are the consequence of the confrontation between figures and configurations and, as authors, they endure through the purity of the results. I have always been fascinated by their ability to control all the ingredients that gauge an architectural discussion, without contaminating it with added noise or conceptual clutter. No doubt, abstraction is the vehicle through which these two devices are mediated, making iconographic elements more allusive, while tectonic elements become more immaterial: whatever is not necessary, whatever is in the middle scale between the general figure and the discrete element is eliminated.”
