Capturing environments

  • LOCATION: Escadinhas do Duque

The Escadinhas do Duque converge three unique zones of Lisbon: the staircase with small pubs and typical architecture of Lisbon, Rossio station, and the view to the castle of St. Jorge.
These three atmospheres are the centre of the workshop. A drawing structure will be developed focused on capturing the essence of the place. Thus, the workshop will be a ‘practice laboratory’ in which we can apply and work out various sketch tools (pen, pencil and watercolour) and simple method of perspective as a way to make unique registers of the lived places.
