Supersudaca is a network of architects ( mostly latins and all friends ) that have managed to keep working together after nearly 19 years despite of being dispersed in several countries. Supersudaca (a word combination of virtue and immigrant insult for latins) has through its years made a profile that is increasingly diverse in subjects affecting our environment while embracing however a main question: how to be hopeful against world crudeness?
