Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The Studio which addresses the question of the Architectural Design, on the various scales, in its complexity and multi-disciplinary nature. The studio experience, which integrates the various disciplines that contribute to design education, teaches students, in theory and in practice, to develop and formulate original ideas, including in a research context.

During these studios, students must demonstrate, through an independent formulation of a project, that they are able to develop highly innovative solutions, mastering the entire design procedure and the multiple skills called into play. Indeed, students will be required to develop original solutions to topics that architects are faced with due to increasingly complex problems on the European and international horizon.

Risultati di apprendimento attesi


- acquire knowledge and comprehension skills that provide them with awareness of the experimental work involved in design and express and apply original ideas in this area;

- are capable of developing design solutions coherent with the location and context, even in highly complex urban environments;

- are able to develop highly innovative solutions, mastering the entire design procedure and the multidisciplinary knowledge they have acquired.

Argomenti trattati

The studio will focus on the urban housing project in Milan. The teaching method is based on theoretical lectures, group discussions and hands-on exercises. A project work will be developed by students in order to investigate the architectural design from urban issues to constructive arguments. The students will be divided in small teams (2 or 3 students each team) and each team will have to develop one project from the urban to the small constructive scale. During the semester, designing mediums will include many kinds of sketch modeling, sketching, making of full size pieces of the building and drawing methods both that you used last semester and new ones. In addition we will be working in model (big and small scale) and digital programs that can be useful in explaining your design.


Project Site

The city of Milan has recently engaged in a series of urban re-generation programs. This Architectural Design Studio will focus on one of this. We will work on Milan urban identity.


Project Program

We will design an housing building program. Our idea is to develop a medium scale building (7.000 – 15.000 square meters) for investigating urban and constructive issues. We will design a complex program able to join different function: residential, commercial and social.

The students must control the main architectural skills. In the studio we'll focus on own student personal capability.



Modalità di valutazione

The final exam will be an oral exam, in which each student will have to present and to discuss the different exercises and the final project. The final exam will take in consideration the evaluation of each exercises developed during the year.

The final evaluation will take in consideration also the improvement done during the course, the interest in the topics covered in class, critical and design skills developed during the year. The Studio will be organized as a journey in which every student will be an active part of that. We will also expect critical discussions and debates along the year, after each phase of the design.
