One of my favourite doors from the Funchal Door’s project was this one by artist and sculptor Patricia Sumares. The door was coated in ceramic faces, with different expressions and dimensions.

The door was designed back to front, as if you were on the inside looking out intended to make the passes by on the street feel like the street and the city was like their own home, and the smiley faces to evoke the family. I particularly liked the way the sun would alter the shadows of the piece creating an almost different piece of art throughout the day.
