Typography in architecture:
Useless artifacts or useless to care about?

Exhibition + Workshop

This project focuses on artifacts that transmit typographic designs and/or letterings, seen as valuable contributions to the construction of identity and history of the urban space, given their presence in time, the quality of the design and their special relation. Faced with the quiet disappearence of these artifacts from their original places and loss of connection from their intended function, it is essential to acknowledge their heritage value. Don’t they reflect an artistic / graphic / typographic history that justifie their preservation, renovation and above all their classification? Or should we discard them as part of a moment and function that have come to an end? This exhibition and workshop will focus on these questions..
