(English follows)
El taller se centra en detectar �anomal�as� que puedan inducir modosalternativos en los que concebir y tratar la materia urbana. Estas anomal�as estar�an estrechamente relacionadas con la noci�n de des/reprogramaci�nde espacios, enriqueci�ndolos al implementar o a�adirnuevas aplicaciones. Las condiciones observadas pueden estar ligadas ala manera en que el programa inicial de un edificio es alterable o a laconsideración de fen�menos menos visibles que mantienen un valorcr�tico. Una serie de recorridos explorar�n en detalle el gran contrastede las condiciones dia/noche que ayudar�n al desarrollo de la acción. Enparticular, se prestar� atenci�n al sistema de subcomunicación de laciudad ??? mobiliario urbano, gestión del espacio, comportamientos p�blicos??? donde patrones de uso a menudo se revelan en maneras fragmentarias.Estas observaciones sacan a la luz situaciones que podr�an ser formuladasy seguidas por los participantes, contribuyendo as� a otro tipode conocimiento urbano por medio de las t�cnicas de �escanear, transcribir,suplementar�.

The workshop focuses on detecting positive anomalies that might induce alternative ways in thinking and dealing with urban matter. Anomalies would be closely tied with the notion of de/re-programming spaces, enriching their life span with new embedded or add-on capacities. Observed conditions may be tied to the way a building???s initial program can betweaked or to the consideration of less visible phenomena that hold
critical value. A set of walks will survey highly contrasted day-time and night-time conditions in order to foster action ; particular attention will be given to the city???s sub-communicational system - street interfaces, space management, public behaviours - where use patterns often reveal themselves in fragmentary ways. Such observations spark up scenarios that could be devised and pursued by participants, thus contributing to another kind of urban knowledge by the means of scanning, scripting or supplementing.
