Public Drawing Workshop
The series of Public Drawing Workshops investigate the potential of architectural drawings not only to precisely map urban spaces or public buildings and the daily life in and around them, but to understand them also as allegories or inventions of self-enclosed worlds, thus giving the drawings an operative dimension. Architecture students work in international groups, with each team studying a site and producing a drawing. Public Drawings are drawn by a collective of authors in pencil. This technique facilitates erasings and additions, allowing the drawings to follow the discussions between the participants. Through this process, they become a platform of communication.
