Guto Requena

Info

Estudio Guto Requena reflects about memory, digital culture and poetic narratives in all design scales.

Guto, born in Sorocaba, countryside of Sao Paulo State. He graduated as Architect and Urban Planner in 2003 at USP - University of São Paulo. 

We shape memories trough the experimental use of digital technologies.
Good design should tell a good story.
Our final aesthetic results from the process.
We love hybrids, interactivity and overlaying analogic with numeric.
We enlarge the life cycle based in sustainable affection.
Design must invite us to reflect about the time and the world we live in.
Design must solve problems. Anyone can be a designer. Who is the author?
Cyberculture redefined our daily lives forever.
— Guto Requena
