We mostly think architecture when walking. We design with our whole body, on the move. Solvitur ambulando.
Which kind of information do we harvest in this initial stage? Where and when to stop? How to order it and establish priorities?
Little Maps is a pedagogical project focused in how we can learn in intimacy to architecture today.
What can we think of? To anticipate how a place will work, how will people feel in it, how it will age, how it will get better with time.
How will the building survive earthquakes, fires and hurricanes.
Check, check and check. Then check again.
What can we think of? To build before building.
To identify some symptoms, which most of the time are not what we initially expected. What is the job to be done?
