Chinese Domination

In the near future,

China will need 2,800 airplanes within 20 years.

Chinese air traffic shall by multiply by 4 and the amount of aircrafts by 9!

(Up-to-date, Americans takes the plane twice per year, Europeans takes the plane once per year, Chinese takes the plane once each other 30 years).


In 2013 a space machine is expected to explore the Moon soils during 90 days,

In 2017, selected samples will be brought to Earth and,

between 2020 and 2030 Chinese astronauts will operate permanently on the Moon ground (Americans are expecting to operate their space station by 2024).

…who said China could only manufacture cheap t-shirts?

Plasma Studio TV Show

Dynamic and sparkling -seeking for a coffee- also frank and funny, Eva Castro interacted with Middle East TV Show -journalists, producers and team- last week.

With this combination of pragmatism and radical thinking (in her thick South American accent) Eva answered an interview about the direction her practice is taking, developing new inclusive and responsive processes of design applied at many types of projects, in different scales.


Special Thanks to Beirut-based Rima Ghosn and Pamela Tannoury, Abu Dhabi TV producers for including PlasmaStudio in their agendas.
