Typography in architecture:
Useless artifacts or useless to care about?
Joana Lessa, Paulo T. Silva
Motivated by the fast and quiet disappearance of old typographical artefacts in architectural facades, this workshop aims to foster reflection on the value of typography as a value in the place ‘s identity construction. Also, it wants to challenge participants to look critically at the validity of preservation versus destruction of artifacts, guided by a diverse team (Design, Typography, Architecture). It is not intended to raise nostalgic or staganated approaches, but instead to look for transformative and intervening values of identity, on the grounds that this attitude is the most appropriate route to the contemporary construction of identity.
