Sketches taken during field work: Most are an attempt to understand the space and the activities taking place in and around the square. The centrality of the tree highlights its significance as a spatial marker and an attraction point. Some drawings are meant to record the process and to act as a reminder of sorts for further and more developed diagramming.
