In May 2013, PLOT Magazine and We Made That ran an open workshop at Torcuato Di Tella University to coincide with the exhibition opening of Archizines in Buenos Aires. Over the course of 4 days, over 30 workshop participants used printed media to promote broader discussion of the city and the built environment. Their work was complied to create ‘Buenos Aires Civic City Press’, a new publication investigating the River Barrio of Buenos Aires.
Exploring the area’s identity and history, the spaces that define it and the invisible but significant economy and connectivity that shape public experience of the barrio, the workshop groups created thematic pamphlets collated in a single folio. Together they were a celebration of open and accessible communication about the built environment and its relevance to the city’s inhabitants.
