The Micro-architecture of Plants


In this workshop we’ll explore cameraless photography techniques, both digital (scanography) and historical (Van Dyke Brown), to dive into the microstructure of natural elements collected in the vicinity of Palácio Sinel de Cordes, observing its formulas and geometric progressions. The photographic prints will be the starting point for the exploration of the image through direct architectural drawing.
