Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi

The BUILDING TECHNOLOGY STUDIO is a studio based on the design activity and in which the student acquires the ability to control and coordinate inside the design process building technologies, structural elements and building physics behavior. 

In particular the Workshop comprehends three interconnected sections: Architecture Technology, Structural Design and Building Physics.

The Technology section will mainly relate with construction techniques, materials, spaces, performances and values that represent an actual resource which must be carefully and thoroughly evaluated in the design process.

The Structural Design section will focus on the criteria leading to the selection of the best structural solution (materials, structural scheme, construction techniques) with respect to the different design requirements.

The Building Physics section will deal with the conditions and performance requirements in buildings and the energy-efficient technologies and design strategies that are essential for designing sustainable, comfortable and architectural sensitive buildings.


Main educational targets

The work into the laboratory aims students to synthesize information acquired along the semester and during the previous courses and laboratories. The project is where this crucial synthesis takes place. Students are introduced to verify and apply into the project former acquired abilities (technology, history, architectural composition, analysis of physical and social context, study of program requirements) and new pieces of information acquired during the in the course (architecture technology, structural design and building physics). The target is gained through a progressive effort in approaching the final result.

The target of teaching is to achieve for every student a personal capability to approach technologies and techniques as a tool that should be used into the architectural project considered as a unique ensemble.

The course consists in lectures and workshop activity.

The steps of the work 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

The students will be evaluated mainly on their project and its contents with regard to the subjects of the studio. Starting from the presentation of the results of the design activity each student will have to answer to specific questions about Architecture Technology, Structural Design and Building Physics to evaluate also the level of knowledge, analysis and critical elaboration of the lessons and bibliography contents.
