Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

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.

Argomenti trattati

The future of living space, the needs of societies and places, raise urgent and crucial questions that require responsible responses. In coherence with the contemporary scenarios and the consequent training goals, the Studio 2 deepens all the disciplinary knowledge and innovative theoretical and operational tools, which are essential for designing architectures, responding to structural and constructive adequacy, principles of environmental, economic, and aesthetic sustainability; as well as allowing buildings that comply with the requirements of functionality, well-being and use.

Therefore, the Studio faces the challenge of improving the quality of living spaces through projects able to manage situations, programs and aspects of high difficulty, recomposing visions and disciplines that can not be separated but must produce interactions between symbolic-aesthetic representations and functional-structural-technical procedures.

The training of this last year of the master's degree program, which will end with the thesis, requires, on the one hand, the most in-depth possible humanistic and scientific knowledge; on the other, the ability of their application and the possibility to verify and validate all the choices, in relation to the quality of the building in its context.

The studio will face topical and complex issues, about architectures that can play relevant roles in the contemporary spatial and social contexts.

In the first semester, the Studio will address the architecture of the Theatre (Shenzhen Opera) or the Palasport for the Olimpic Games 2026 ( Milan, Santa Giulia Palaitalia).

The second semester will be finalized to the deepening –at the highest cultural-technical qualitative level- of one of the projects already developed (in the first year or in the first semester of the second year). The formal /constructive solutions will be demonstration of an effective ability to manage the architectural design through depth and integrated knowledge.


Passing the exam of the first year Architectural Design Studio.

Modalità di valutazione

Student activities will be carried out in groups of 2-3 people and will be developed in three 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 use criteria for evaluating design choices;

- modeling capacity in BIM environment

- ability to argue and critically expose the project through the most effective drawings and models.
