Panel #3

Architecture and Urban Space in the History of Photography 

This panel will address issues related to Architecture and Public Space from the perspective of History of Photography. This panel is directed to globally promote critical analysis around the relations established between History of Photography and Architecture, and how these relations influence the notions of public space in various ways, thus enriching its meaning and influencing the perception of aesthetical, historical, cultural, political and social aspects of the urban space; 

Some issues of interest that can be taken on board, but not limited to, are:
- The relevance of History of Photography on Architecture Theory
- The use of visual narratives in photography for exploration of architecture, city and territory;
- The importance of image for the dissemination and comprehension of architecture;
- The relationship between photographer and architect;
- Photography as a design tool for architects to imagine urban spaces; 
- The rich universe of images that comprise photography and drawing as well as a number of other expressions that are intertwined with memory and sense of place and space;
- The potential in the idea of combining and exploring photography in architecture, along with other media and design tools and visual representations;
- Curatorial and/or editorial strategies about the practice and discipline of architecture
- The importance of editorial projects for the creation of space for debate and critical commentary, and the impact it can have in the cultural production and artistic creation at national and international levels.
