Talk on Architecture

Pedro Leão e Scopio

The end of the afternoon of 24 September 2015 was dedicated to Editorial Project as a Process of Discussion and Construction of Ideas in Architecture. The Sinel de Cordes Palace hosted a round table discussion dedicated to the theme, as part of the welcome programme at the Palace. The debates were moderated by Pedro Leão Neto, coordinator of the publisher Scopio, with the participation of two invited authors - Gonçalo Canto Moniz (DA/FCTUC ) and José Maçãs de Carvalho (DA/FCTUC), for their connections to the editorial world of Photography and Architecture.

The debate had as main focus on the experience of Scopio, dedicated to the documentary photography of Architecture, with a relevant weight of the artistic component and the practice of Architecture. Comprehensively understood and capable of being interpreted by all those who seek it, the discipline was praised by the guests. The programme also included the presentation of the 5th edition of International Photography Magazine - Crossing Borders, Shifting Boundaries: Architecture.

Scopio Networks is an independent platform that crosses the AAI-FAUP research group, scopio Editions and Cityscopio, Cultural Association. This platform aims to support diverse editorial forums and initiatives, ideas, projects, competitions and workshops related to photography research and its editorial agendas. The network is also responsible for the annual periodical edition, Scopio Magazine, which works as a dissemination and research support related to Architecture, Art and Image (AAI) and, in a more specialized way, to Documentary and Artistic Photography related to Architecture, City and Territory. In this context, architecture is understood in a comprehensive way as a practice and discipline capable of integrating the social, economic, political, historical and technical domains.
