Rome City & Urban Superbia: Drawing the Invisible workshop unit took place in Rome during 13 – 17 December 2011, as part of the Urban Transcripts 2011: Rome, the accidental city international workshop on the city.

Drawing the Invisible workshop unit was developed and led by Dr Eugenia Fratzeskou (also a Curatorial Committee & Project Review Committee Member) as the guest tutor responsible for the development of the creative methodologies of urban research, exploration, analysis, and design (including the workshop phases planning), together with Dr Claudia Faraone as the host tutor responsible for the thematic framework (Superbia/Pride) of the workshop, and for organising and conducting the one-day urban exploration of Rome.  The workshop was academically accredited by Università degli Studi Roma Tre and took place at its DipSU studios.

Workshop participants included an international group of students with a background in architecture, urban planning, digital media and other fields. The workshop participants were: Gebriel Admassu Askabe (Polytecnico di Milano), Aslihan Ay Güngör (Istanbul Technical University), Sepideh Farjami (Polytecnico di Milano), Kyriaki Goti  (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki), Surajkumar Nandakumar (Polytecnico di Milano), Zohreh Shaghaghian (Polytecnico di Milano) and Gregory Tsarouhas (Democretian University of Thrace).

Drawing the Invisible is currently expanded further as an independent  initiative and a dedicated blog has been created for this purpose. The Drawing the Invisible Blog functions as a digital platform, promoting the initiative’s series of past and forthcoming international activities and projects, developing an online forum, facilitating the announcements of its members activities, and supporting the dissemination of the relevant resources including research material and publications.
