Placemaking Action


From 16 March 2020 to 20 April 2020




26 April 2020



These works were planned and carried out in the period of confinement, during March and April 2020, within the subject Systems of Representation at the School of Architecture La Salle.


The pedagogic programme was designed to fulfil multiple objectives:

•  to introduce students to some fundamentals of the photographic medium and its relationship to perception and representation of architectural space

•  to reflect on the capacity of photographs to capture a sense of place

•  to perceive and communicate the experience of living in the confinement through photographic media

•  to share some reflections about the confined places with the community through a public blog


The work has been carried out in the online learning environment ARCLASS, created by the research group ARC Engineering and Architecture La Salle.


Students from the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa,and from the Faculty of Architecture, University of Ljubljana, have participated in these activities.


Students photographs are published in the blog "A Confined Place" 


A comprehensive summary of the work done is available in this document
