A systemic approach to technology


Advanced design tools assume a central role in the contemporary practice of architecture, both in the design and construction phases, expanding design potentiality and increasing control and precision over the arising complexity of the design process. Through digital design workflow, nowadays recognized as an international standard, the virtual model becomes an ideal playground where to perform design conceptualization and refinement within an iterative process of modelling, simulation and optimization. In this scenario it is fundamental to develop a holistic approach to technology in which innovative tools, fabrication techniques and emergent technologies are synergically conceived and applied to inform consistent design outputs, from the early stages to the definition of construction and performative characteristics of the architectural systems.


Studio methodology


Following the idea of a design-driven learning process, the studio will be mainly organized around the architectural and construction design of an Building Pavilion for Milano EXPO 2015. Students will work in small groups and guided to create an original concept for an architecture of exhibition and its development into an architectural system successfully integrating spatial, performative, functional and technological aspects. Complementary activities will consist of theoretical lectures held by teachers and representatives of architecture and construction sector. Short exercises will introduce to design methodology and develop specific technical skills.

Note Sulla Modalità di valutazione

Students will be evaluated on their project during the semester according to three design phases. Intermediate evaluations will partially contribute to the final assessment together with a final exam where definitive projects will be presented and discussed in reference with the topics tackled during the studio.
