Abstract

The unusual guide to Porto. This is the title of the drawing research report that approaches the theme of urban landscape. The work is a guide of Porto city, lined by the change of use of the standard tourist guide, as a contribution to an unusual guide.

Approaching the concept of unusual in the fields of suggestion and action, in which drawing appears as a substitute of fotography, different angle views are suggested as a demand for changing the spectator behavior. We show the most watched Porto, in the least seen way.

Thus, the implication areas which contribute for the unusual are: the time of the drawing, the perception defined by Merleau-Ponty. The emancipated spectator, so-called by Jacques Rancière, as the one who observes and interferes. The deviation from the norm, studied by the Group µ. And that the changes caused by drawing as a substitute of photography.

We used the mapping of areas of the intervention through the diagrams and the consequent application of drawing strategies.

All the Oporto city drawing views were made in travel sketchbooks, along routes through the city. The same routes were used in the Unusual Guide and explained with maps.

As a result, a piece of editorial design an Unusual Guide of Porto.

Keywords:

Urban landscape drawing, guide, perception, unusual, standard and deviation, contour, travel scketchbook.

About zemiguelcardoso

I am passionate about good food and good wines. I am also obsessed with drawing. On this site you will find examples of the most recent works, always somehow related to drawing. Most studies relate to topics such as urban landscape, city guides, maps and the human figure. There are also some examples of other types of illustration dedicated to the communication of events or instruction manuals that come from my designer activity. I am available for design works, drawing and illustration at freelancer regime.
