Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi

A proper approach in the field of building technology is based on the correct understanding of the relationship between technology and design, starting from the theoretical and practical knowledge of the existing connections between the design phase and the construction process. Design choices need to be coherent with the environmental, economic and social context, providing effective solutions aimed at the sustainability of the entire building process, in a life-cycle perspective.

The MULTI-SCALE BUILDING TECHNOLOGY STUDIO provides an interdisciplinary approach involving the disciplines of Architecture Technology, Structural Design and Building Physics.

The Multi-Scale approach is developed either according the interactions of these disciplinary fields in the project domain, either considering the interconnection of design solutions at building, neighbourhood and urban district scales.


Main educational targets

Starting from the recognition of the relationships that link design and technical culture in architecture, the course aims to provide methodological and operational tools to implement the choice and application of specific technologies and construction systems into the design of an architectural intervention at the scales of urban district and single building.

The final outcome of the studio is to acquire the ability to implement the most appropriate design strategies and technological options in relation to a given problem of design and construction, as well as the ability to assess the degree of compliance of building elements and technical solutions with key requirements, such as comfort, safety, durability, resources management.

Specific topics of the course will include:

a. the role of the project within the construction process;

b. the design development based on the principles of sustainability, energy efficiency and rational use of environmental resources;

c. the assessment of technological options and construction techniques in coherence with the requirements/performance and life-cycle design approach;

d. the analysis of best practices for the development of eco-districts and green buildings;

e. the national and international regulatory framework in the field of building sustainability;

f. the application of ICT tools for the verification of environmental quality and energy performance.

The teaching methods provided will focus on theoretical lectures, aiming at defining basic concepts and methodologies, as well as on applicative workshop activities, which will provide a process of learning by doing.

The steps of the work to be developed will be the followings:

1. context survey and analysis;

2. functional program analysis;

3. project approach;

4. main idea formulation;

5. project development;

6. project presentation.

Note Sulla Modalità di valutazione

Evaluation criteria

Students will be evaluated through a final exam which, starting from the presentation of the project, focuses on theoretical and methodological concepts developed within the course, illustrating how they have been translated into effective design solution. Active participation in workshop activities and quality of mid-term deliveries will also contribute to the final evaluation.
