This method is based on a passion for manual labor that remains intact from his childhood. The work with models involves hands, charged with emotion, to approach the project: a continuous process of addition and removal that sets according to program needs, constructive rationality and economic viability. There is a deep interest at Fernando Menis, for the reuse of natural and environmental resources, be those cultural or historical, as the means of each project and each site.
