Urban Anatomy Course in Santorini, Greece
Tutor: Arch. Salomon Moshe
During the 'Urban Anatomy' course in the Santorini island of Greece, in the summer of 1994
students were requested to survey a place during the two weeks of this field trip, registering their impressions of the place -by hand - measuring and drawing, without cameras or other mechanical devices.
The course rationale is that architecture being a built entity, it should be studied on site.
The prolonged stay in a fixed place allowed the students to learn that the feeling of a place includes many non-built or intangible ingredients such as sounds, moist, wind, sun, smells, ageing of materials, plants, cracks, heat and cold, people.
Those impressions were compiled and edited by students Ayelet Karmon and Hila Steinberger and published by the Technion Press in 1995.
