  2. Hi Magnus! I'm an architecture student at Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC), in Brazil. Althoug I've lived in Brasil for 14 years, I'm mozambican and since this is my last year at college, I've decided to do my final project in Maputo, my home city. My project will be a low income housing near Praça dos Touros. I liked your project (it's really good, congratulations) and I would like to consider it on my project. Can we talk about it?
