The main objective is to qualify researchers and architects, about the intangible meanings of architectural space and the way in which the relationship between urban or built space interacts with the human.
Syllabus Investigation based on case studies, surveys, interviews and seminars with the presence of guests in the study area, namely with regard to the way of interpreting the surrounding space, through the perception of colors and shapes.

Creative and pragmatic processes, objects, modes and purposes of Drawing;
Drawing iconography, lexicon and grammar (space, shape, matter, structure, contour, typology, composition, proportion, space, light, color, texture);

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria - The doctorate student should be able to have an individual perspective, at the level of his personal background, that shows an understanding about intangible factors and how they influence the interpretation of the architectural space and the urban space. Knowledge of these intangible elements should be interpreted and later systematized, in order to give useful and dynamic proposals for work in the architectural space.
- The scientific argument will also be based on phenomenology, which implies in a more individual interpretation of what has been or will be observed.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
