SCOPIO Network is an independent platform intertwining research group CCRE-FAUP, scopio Editions and Cityscopio Cultural Association. It intends to support diverse forums and editorial initiatives, ideas, projects, competitions and workshops related to our photography research and editorial agendas.
SCOPIO Network aims to hold the interest of different people and research coming from various groups, institutions and fields of study with an interest on art and documentary photography in regards to its conception as an instrument to question Architecture, City and Territory universe.
This means understanding Architecture as an extended discipline and practice with an interest, on one side, in the real space and its experiences, exploring new spatial forms and architectural codes, and on the other side, in how architecture operates within larger systems: socio-cultural, technical, and historical.
We intend, with this strategy, to promote the awareness and reflection upon art and documentary photography in regards to its conception as an instrument to question Architecture, City and Territory universe. This means understanding Architecture as an extended discipline and practice with an interest, on one side, in the real space and its experiences, exploring new spatial forms and architectural codes, and on the other side, in how architecture operates within larger systems: socio-cultural, technical, and historical.
Our main goals are:
1) to encourage the development of knowledge on art and documentary photography and architectural culture, cooperating with national and international research groups, policy makers and creative communities;
2) to promote knowledge transfer, transdisciplinarity, participatory live events or other activities.
