A master plan is a tool to create cities. Through thematic themes, methods of planning and parting from a specific scale, we think of a plan to improve/create/renovate/change the urban space. The challenge of architecture representation is in showing in an effective way something in existent in space, whether it be an urban or architectural space. When someone thinks in the scale of Master Plans, it is not only a challenge to represent it but also to think of a method of representation that recognizes the context of the project, the context of the environment and the small intentions of the author. The master plans that will be shown this week have been projects that have transmitted in an effective way it’s intentions. some of these projects start from the scale of the city all the way to the scale of the user. While other projects with tools like colors and info graphics communicate strategies to improve cities.
