Transarquitetônica – a huge installation at the Museum of Contemporary Art, University of São Paulo by Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira.

Composed entirely of recycled materials, the structure – which visitors can walk through – transitions from the cavernous interior of knotted roots to brick walls and painted corridors, symbolising our evolution from primitive shelter to modern urban architecture.
