Limousine Festival Concept: Contemporary architecture provides representations of a hyper-fast changing world, through new experimentations and generating differences which integrate with the environment. Architecture is no longer conceived as a container of human life but as extensions of the body that produce changes in human behavior, as integral part of it. All is propagated, expanded, over geographical, cultural, religious and social borders, producing “liquid cities” where differences create new compounds and hybridization between identities and urban environment. People, backgrounds, societies, progress and all their inputs create hybrid identities, changing each other and being mixed to shape a better world.
