ROUNDTABLE AT UNIDAD PREDEPARTAMENTAL DE ARQUITECTURA DA UNIVERSIDADE DE ZARAGOZA, 19TH OCTOBER
Public presentation followed by open questions from the public concerning the Editorial Project focused on Documentary and Artistic photography related to Architecture, City and Territory. It will be seen how this Editorial Project SCOPIO has, on the one hand, supported and spread the various text and image content related to the topics of interest and whose origins emanate from initiatives and projects in which the research group CCRE collaborates, or that is coming from its research line City Spaces and Culture. On the other hand, how it has spread several photography projects and authors who conduct research on photography as an exploratory and innovative tool for thinking critically the themes of Architecture, City and Territory.
The project aims 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.
