The Nolli Map of Rome by Giambattista Nolli is one of the most significant docments in the history of urban design. It showed in detail nearly 2000 sites of cultural significance, and shows the public urban spaces of Rome.
The City Revealed Voluntary Assosciation will be hosting a 3 day workshop to attempt to document the city of Windhoek using similar methods (but not the same size, the original map was six feet high!). On the first day, the 21st of October 2016, there will be an hour-long orientation session. The next 2 days will entail full day workshops which will include drawing and observing the public spaces within the city. The final product of these workshops will be a highly detailed Nolli Map of Windhoek. This map will be provided to the public as an educational tool and informative guide to the city's urban forms.The hour-long orientation session will be provided at no cost and is open to the public. The full day workshops (8 hours per day) are N$250 each, or N$500 total. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, and you will get a free A3 copy of the completed Nolli Map of Windhoek with your name included as a contributor.
