The project Arquigrafia won the first place on the Applied Social and Human Technology category of the Innovation Olympics at USP. This contest is in its second edition in 2011 and had 641 other projects in four different categories, of which 52 were selected for the second phase. The Arquigrafia project is a joint project of 3 institutes of the university aiming at offering a social network for the collaborative construction of a digital collection of Brazilian architecture images. The social network allows users to share their personal images collections and to discuss and analyze the images. The collection of photographs of the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism of USP is being digitalized to feed the system.
