The workshop is an intensive five days of field work and presentations conducted in Goa. The French, Dutch, Portuguese and British established colonial cities in Indian subcontinent. This period lasted for hundreds of years and was marked by specific ideas of urban development that reflected different colonial intents.
In this workshop we will try and understand how the city of Goa was shaped during the period of Portuguese rule and how it reflected the particular ideological position and intentions of the colonizer.
Using urban morphology and civic architecture as the vehicles of analysis, the participants will learn to establish the correlation between larger ideologies and urban spatial structures.
