Workshop : Portuguese Colonial Urbanism

The workshop was an intense five days of field work and hands on conceptualization that was 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 participants tried to understand how the settlements of Goa were 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 learnt to establish the correlation between larger colonial ideologies and urban spatial structures.
