Call for Applications: Open Course ´Architecture and Drawing - 20th Century Multi-Family Housing´
September 2017 - January 2018, FAUP, Porto, Portugal
DATE: 27/9/2017
"The second call for applications for the Open Course ´Architecture and Drawing - 20th Century Multi-Family Housing´ (2nd edition) are now open on the Faculty of Architecture - University of Porto (FAUP) website from 19 to 27 September, 2017. Classes begin on September, 2017, and finish on January, 2018 (weekly class: Fridays, 2h30 - 6h00 pm).

From a set of multi-family housing singular cases, the the OC explores the various drawing meanings in project: the design understood as a conception and communication means but above all, as a way of thinking, understanding and doing architecture; the design understood as a preferential instrument in the project in-depth study - its conceptual options/models and respective composition themes/principles.

It presents a case study by class explicitly and thematically framed in architecture theory and history, based on a lecture given by a guest teacher.

Coordinated by architects and teachers André Santos e Maria José Casanova, the Open Course ´Architecture and Drawing - 20th Century Multi-Family Housing´ stems from the interest of
researchers associated to Housing study, invited to lecture in the optional course “Architecture and Drawing”, within the Master Degree in Architecture at FAUP.

The teaching staff includes: André Santos, António Madureira, Domingos Tavares, Francisco Barata, Francisco Fontes, Helder Casal Ribeiro, Luís Soares Carneiro, Luís Viegas, Marco Ginoulhiac, Maria José Casanova e Marta Rocha.

The course is designed for students from the University of Porto interested in the thematics, students of architecture, architects and general public. This training has a cost of 70 € for members of the academic community of U.Porto (students, teachers, researchers and administrative staff) and 100 € for the general public."
