Reading Principles - Supports
Several samples taken from the municipality of Guimarães
This exercise was designed with the purpose of introducing students to the study of urban supports, dealing with specific outlooks for each level – physical support, plot structure, road layout and built form – as well as their interworking relations.
The exercise was carried out in several areas of the municipality of Guimarães. The municipality was divided into several parts, each of them conforming a 1/10000 scale urban tissue sample assigned to a group of two students.
