The Sport Elec architectures consist of two glass plates and two battens on which they are based. On one of the plates, the drawing of an architecture is executed with a device to burn the glass and arms covered with electrodes from a ‘Sport Elec’ unit (electro stimulation machine). Despite the attempt to remain as accurate as possible to the original drawing, many erasures / errors / gaps occur each time a shock is inflicted by the appliance. The glass is then painted black and scratched, revealing the engraving. On the second plate, only the silhouette of the building is depicted, which is plotted with the same device on the arm. The superposition of the two stands to face both architectural studies; the first, about pattern, and the second, concerning the colored shape.
