Public presentation at Porto Innovation Hub of the results of the Project Marathon Sketching the City, workshop on urban design, in which the final-year architecture students at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto (FAUP) are challenged to a week of intensive work devoted to reflect on a set of themes and city places of Porto (from 6 to 10 of February).

With the collaboration of municipal technicians, multidisciplinary experts and teachers, this initiative aims to provide a practical experience, closer to the agents of territorial transformation, thus becoming pertinent and inspiring for future architects. Simultaneously, it aims to bring into discussion innovative solutions for different spaces of the city, implementing points of view, strategies or possible actions through the urban design, which is understood as a conceptualization tool of the narratives present in the intervention of places which reference and materialize the collective spaces system.
Thus, through an initiative which relies on the sharing of challenges and experiences between the city of Porto and FAUP, it is also possible to acknowledge that Sketching the modern City involves meeting the diversity of collective readings and representations arising from consensus and antagonisms, which ultimately allow to assign meaning to reality.
The works to be presented publicly in Porto Innovation Hub on 10th February will give rise to a publication and may be included in the selection for the exhibition which will follow this event.
