Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi

The Workshop aims at enhancing awareness around the logic process leading the architectural project through a general hypothesis that includes a knowing effort and, therefore, an analytic point of view. The development of a project's culture and practice fundamentals, as well as of composition elements, happens parallely to the definition of those general principles that rule the proper articulation of an architectural artifact, of its morphological, typological, functional and distributive characters, and of its relationship to history and context. The processes that lead the architectural project to become a potential tool for the valorization and the preservation of local identities and land specificities will be investigated, in order to acknowledge the link between the culture of a place and its future. Therefore, starting from the specific problems of real territory, characterized by intelligible and interpretable identity features, the theoretic apparatus and the debate around the project will focus on the relationship with the context, the possibilities of interaction among the parts, and the potential and limits of urban and architectural elements involved. The experience offered by the Design Studio will develop within a didactic project focused on such phenomena as decommission, underutilization and abandonment, concerning both public and private spaces and artifacts, characterized by different dimensions, consistencies and typologies. This didactic project aims at fostering the debate about such themes, also involving institutions and civil society. Within the Design Studio, the assigned area will be the object of critical readings and analysis, aimed at identifying the characters of the urban system that articulates collective spaces, residential textures and infrastructures, according to a specific relationship between program and building type, between building type and urban morphology, between building and context. A special attention will be focused on the relationship between project and urban landscape, between new buildings and historical texture, between design and typological and morphological structures of the built form, between form and content. In particular, the integrative modules of “Architectural Design Theory” and “Interior Design” will support the in-depth analysis of the elements of urban and architectural composition, through lessons, debates and analysis of relevant theoretic contributions. The course is articulated according to theoretical and applied successive phases. Lectures, providing iconographic and bibliographic references, specific communications and seminars will take place in coherence and to the support of the design research that builds the core of the didactic structure. Through weekly revisions and discussions on the problems encountered in the advancement of the work, the design activities are aimed at learning control methods of the design process, from the idea to its definition. The projects are developed at various scales (from the land/urban scale to the architectural and interior design scale) and focus on a mixed program, combining residences for traditional customers and “special” dwellers (elderly, commuters, students, socially disadvantaged categories, etc.), services and collective spaces to the small and medium scale, as well as open spaces.

Note Sulla Modalità di valutazione

The Workshop requires constant and continuous attendance along the semester and during each day of class. The students are asked to work in the classroom and, for the whole duration of the total amount of hours corresponding to the assigned credits, also outside the Workshop scheduled hours. The prevailing activity of design exercises is faced by students during class hours, both individually and/or within a small group, with the assistance of professors and assistants. On a regular basis, the students will complete tests and assignments, that wil lallow the professors to assess the level of understanding and the coherence ofthe work load, in respect to the didactic goals.

At the end of the semester, the students who have reached the necessary amount of attendance and have positively completed the assignments will be admitted to the exam. The attendance of each student and the revisions of work are regularly registered. The final evaluation will consider the outcome of the assignments and of the final project, as well as the interview on the assigned bibliography.
