Last week, once again we received our colleagues from Tokyo polytechnic UNiversity (KooGei University). We organised a week of workshops. Some were delivered by Tokyo professors. Palace Quintela was incredibly alive with parallel events in a very creative atmosphere.
Our colleague professor vitor simões, a great friend, passed away yesterday after a long fight with lung cancer. He was a strong believer in the virtues of academia, of friendship and straightforwardness. May the news of an after life be true so that we can meet again somewhere in the future.
I sometimes arrive a little early to the places I’m meeting people. these are perfect opportunities for sketching. Little travels inside places thought to be well-known but, in a certain day and perspective can look new.
