053266 - ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN STUDIO FOR COMPLEX CONSTRUCTION 2
The reality, everywhere, asks architecture a thorough cultural and ethical responsibility. Therefore the teaching aims to consolidate disciplinary knowledge and theoretical references, to feed critical attitudes, to induce conscious design choices. These tools allow to tackle the design of complex new buildings, with awareness of its formal, functional, structural, technological components.
The complexity of the design processes is faced and managed through the interconnection between the teachings of Architectural design, Structural design, Building services design, Innovative materials for architecture and Technology and design in BIM environment. The trans-disciplinary approach nourishes rationality and imagination and the possibility of recomposing form, function and construction in unitary visions bearers of new reasons and meanings.
Knowledge and experiences will allow the conclusion of the Master’s training program up to the final exam and, subsequently, to the elaboration of the degree thesis.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
Lectures, project reviews, workshops, study trips, exhibitions and seminars will allow students to acquire the knowledge and skills appropriate to the conclusion of the Master's course of study and to the conscious elaboration of the degree thesis:
-the attitude to consider architecture as a form of knowledge, as critical thinking, as a tool for understanding reality in the perspective of its virtuous and ethical transformation.
-the ability to learn and elaborate the multidisciplinary skills of the compositional, constructive, structural, and
service- systems components.
-the ability to apply knowledge and understanding to issues and contexts of high complexity, responsibly facing and managing the design process at different scales and in all phases, from the conceptual moment to the executive one.
-the individual capacity of making judgments using multiple criteria in the evaluation of design decisions providing a range of benefits, social values and sustainable costs.
-the ability of communication using, in all areas of confrontation and discussion, the most effective verbal and drawing means.
The Studio is aimed at progressing students’ disciplinary knowledge, theoretical tools and integrated design skills in order to grasp the “complexity” of Architecture: the search for a balance between “vision” and construction, between form and technical innovation, to respond to issues significant for contemporary social, economic and urban transformations. The design topic will focus students' attention on the role of architecture in the transformation processes of the 21st century city: an “urban device” acting in both physical and cultural setting of the city and capable of shaping new urban environments and civic spaces.
Students will be required to examine their conceptual and design propositions for two sites, in Milan and Basel, to explore the contemporary emerging model of Science, Knowledge and Innovation District as high-performance workplace with the best possible conditions for communication, exchange and collaboration where leading-edge anchor institutions, universities and enterprises cluster in a lively urban environment.
Students will be asked to focus on the spatial, functional and infrastructural relationships between these compounds and the city, and on the capability of what typically represented a “closed enclave”, almost completely reserved for a scientific community, to become an “authentic city district”, physically dense, highly accessible, aimed at integrating work, recreation and housing.
Students will tackle the design of The Human Technopole, as part of Milan Innovation District (MIND) and in its relationship with the adjacent University of Milan's new Science Campus, taking the opportunity of the International Architecture Competition now ongoing in Milan.
A second challenging site will be offer in Basel, international hub for innovative companies and fifth European major center of scientific innovation, home to the headquarters of Novartis, Roche and Lonza and elective location for many other life sciences companies, as well as universities, research centers and hospitals.
In both sites, the architectural project will test the capacities of the masterplan “plots” to accommodate innovative research buildings (developed up to the scale of technical and executive detail) with experimental typologies that reshape conventions of work environment. The design of a complex Life Science Research building, integrated into the masterplan as an “urban device”, will also provide an opportunity for addressing the contemporary international debate on the central role that Campuses, both academic and corporate, take in the cultural, economic and social development of the contemporary city and in its most relevant and dynamic processes of transformation.
As in the past years, the sites and themes selected for the design exercise encourage the debate between the work of the Studio and local, national and international institutions, promoting a mutual exchange between academic research and society.
The Studio will propose an optional, short study trip to Basel, wherein the most innovative Life Science Campuses and Innovation Districts will be visited, as well as remarkable contemporary architectures and urban transformations.
A detailed schedule will be available on Beep on July 18th.
Passing the exam of the first year Architectural Design Studio.
Modalità di valutazione
Assessment methods and criteria.
Student activities will be carried out in groups and will be developed in different phases. Each of these periods, which will correspond to specific training activities and project experiences, will end with a presentation by the students to the committee formed by all the teachers of the Studio. The Board will give each student an evaluation based on the coherence between pre-established goals and the levels of acquired cultural awareness.
The final exam will be a significant moment of critical argumentation and constructive discussion of the project design, where each student will have to demonstrate:
- in-depth disciplinary knowledge of theories and techniques of complex constructions;
- ability to apply knowledge and understanding to issues and contexts of high complexity;
- ability to responsibly facing and managing the design process at different scales and in all phases, from the conceptual moment to the executive one;
- ability to apply integrated structural, constructive and service-system solutions, as expressions of architectural form.
- ability to define and usecriteria for evaluating design choices;
- modelling capacity in BIM environment
- ability to argue and critically expose the project through the most effective drawings and models.
