Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The courses related to the economic, social, legal issues for architecture and urban planning provide students with understanding and theoretical knowledge complementary and synergistic with the disciplinary ones of the architectural field necessary to face with greater awareness, effectiveness and concreteness the design activity.

In particular, the student will be able to deepen one of these three areas:

- knowledge in the social sciences relating to the relationship between man and built environment and to the changes that have characterized this relationship over time and the effects that these changes have produced on conceptions, representations and the project of architecture;

- knowledge in the field of constitutional law, and the principles of administrative law, urban planning law and the legal regime of construction activities in European and national legislation;

- knowledge of economic issues (type and functioning of markets, analysis of supply and demand, private and public goods, bankruptcy and market regulation) related to the design and construction in building sectors.

Argomenti trattati

The course explores the main social, economic and physical transformations that are currently redefining the form of contemporary cities and of the social relations that may develop in their frame. Long-term structural processes of change in the socio-demographic dynamics (including population ageing and migration flows), in the labour market (towards more mobility and flexibility), in the family structures, in the welfare systems, in the productive patterns and in the economic trends deeply affect individual and collective structures of opportunities. The role of architecture in shaping spaces and practices that favour quality of life and social cohesion is crucial, especially in connection with other disciplines and professions such as urban planning, urban sociology, welfare policies. The main aim of the course is to provide students with some analytical tools to critically consider the relations between the spatial and social features of contemporary cities, and of their current transformations.

After introducing the origins and the classics of urban sociology, the course will be organised in two main parts.

  1. the first part will deal with the shift from fordism to post-fordism and its impact on the city, and will tackle different phenomena affecting contemporary cities, including globalization, gentrification, segregation;
  2. the second part will focus on cities as places of welfare, and explore how architecture can contribute to face the complex challenges posed by new social risks and changing social needs.

Invited speakers, expert on specific topics, will enrich the course.

Active participation of students throughout the course will be encouraged and evaluated.
