Learning by Portolans. Reading and Re-writing the built coastline
The Guest Lecture 03 is held by DD PhD Arch. Stefanos Antoniadis (Faculty of Architecture - FA, University of Lisbon - ULisboa) and addresses the trend according to which, by 2050, more than half of the world's population will live within 50 km of major masses of water. This results in strategies that must draw insipiration from investigation practices such as those typical of the nautical discipline, represented by the pilot books.
