  • Peregrine Projections Camino Scroll Porto to Marinhas detail
    2016 Research Grant

    Firat Erdim, assistant professor of Architecture, utilized funds from his CEAH Research Grant to begin a new project. He states, “The research grant I received from CEAH gave me the invaluable opportunity to develop a project, Peregrine Projections, across a much larger terrain than I had previously been able to engage. With the grant, I was able to walk approximately 800km along the Camino de Santiago; from Segovia to Sahagún, Sahagún to Leon, Oviedo to Santiago de Compostela, and because I arrived there earlier than I had anticipated, from Porto back to Santiago de Compostela; and documented the walk through the photo/carto-graphic process invented for the project.
