City-walk and Workshop (part 1)
A central goal of the workshop “Illustration and Architecture” is to investigate the expanded field of illustration, in its intersection with other disciplines such as architecture. This workshop proposes new methods to conduct visual research while the participants explore the city of Porto as if they were a “flâneur”… Always seeking parallels and extrapolations between different forms of mapping, thinking and making. Therefore, the tour is planed as investigative framework for translations to illustration practice to exist.
