Rome City & Urban Superbia: Drawing the Invisible workshop unit took place in Rome during 13–17 December, 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 Universita degli Studi Roma Tre. Workshop participants included an international group of students with a background in architecture, urban planning, digital media and other fields.

Drawing the Invisible has enabled the creation of new drawing methods and tools that are of relevance not only to architectural design, but also, to other kinds of spatial practice and research. The drawing methods that have been devised, are operative as they have enabled a critical and analytical mapping of the urban environment that has inspired and made realisable the development of highly rich and stimulating modes of ‘interpretation’ and ‘intervention’ into the city at a macro as well as a micro scale.
