I want to introduce the medium video, which to me as an architect is very close, because it can do several things so very well: It can document but also measure streams of movement and record events that one can not see while only watching. It shows things that can not be recognized quickly through our normal senses.
Therefore we will take video footage as a basis for our workshop to find a kind of [not complete] equivalence, a certain similarity between the captured model and the real one: the city of Antwerp.
