Course leader

The leader of the workshop is Erika Petrić, architect and artist with research focus on
photography and perception of space.

Target group

The workshop is open to disciplines such as architecture, photography, urban planning and landscape architecture.

Course aim

We are all constantly moving in space, architectural concepts that often dispense our specific
perception. At the same time, today, by the expansion of digital photography and general
mobility, architecture is permanently photographed. Through the medium of photography,
the workshop aims to stimulate the exploration of the city and to give rise to specific notes
of individual experience of space.
The approach to the subject occurs in an experimental and playful manner by the use of
an innovative method of writing: Freewriting. With this method, image-texts are generated
that provoke new approach in reading and photographing architecture and urban space.
