Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The Landcape Design Studio aims at defining and experimenting (at the different scales at which Landscape Architecture works) categories, instruments and strategies to describe, interpret and transform open spaces and landscapes, in their natural and anthropological components, also in relation to the historical transformations and to the social-economic and territorial context to which they belong, with particular reference to the objectives of sustainable development.

The studio problematizes issues of orientation and experience, scale and pattern, topographic form, climatic and vegetative influences, and varied ecological processes that help define open spaces, in urban and natural context. In the center of the sequence of design studios along the master program, the course helps students develop spatial literacy and proficiency in diverse modes of inquiry in landscape architecture.

Landscape Architecture is often required not only to build over the ground, but also to transform the ground through a sort of “moulding”. The course of Geomorphology and Physical Geography is integrated to the studio with the aim of providing the fundamental knowledges in order to reach coherent and workable design choices in relation to the geological substratum as well as in relation to the the vegetation structure of the site

Risultati di apprendimento attesi


- acquire knowledge and understanding of the techniques and tools for landscape design;

- are capable of facing a critical approach to all necessary scales of a landscape design with advanced levels of specialisation and detail;

- are capable of facing design problems where soil, terrain, geology, mineral resources, climate, water, plants, wildlife, and living systems interactions are major drivers;

- acquire high levels of understanding of design research, strategic thinking, technical resolution and graphic expression.

Argomenti trattati

Students will be asked to complete a project, defined to proper scale, of landscape, environment and/or architecture; continuos social, economical and political transformations will be the framework of each intervention as driving forces of physical environment's contemporary fragility. 
The subject of the project will be related to climate change, covering sustainable urban transformation, eco-mobility, public health, blue/green structures and methods of community involvement.
The design studio deals with climate change at the time of the Anthropocene. Thinking to a project that deals with climate change consequences and - in particular - about what sea-level rise means in ravennate territory, does not mean only designing solutions to contrast risks, but above all, it means proposing a new way of looking, of observing a world crossing a specific age. Anthropocene is the era in which the action of man has been -and it will keep being for many millennia- the main geological force. It is necessary to recognize that man’s instinct for survival has made possible enormous transformations, perhaps even greater than those caused by catastrophic events - the one destructive to the natural landscapes that host them, the others towards the work of man. Starting from this point of view - although we understand the drastic nature of the transformations taking place - we have not abandoned an optimistic attitude during our research, so we imagine a reasonable non-apocalyptic scenario. We will not speak about extinction, but we will think transformations and - consequently - evolution. The studio will be conducted with local authorities and on a scenario based on the research "2100: a sea Odyssey" (Monica Moschini, Alessandra Paparcone, Francesca Porro)
This studio aims to refine design abilities acquired in previous experiences of each student and to increase critical and analytical competencies, fundamental in contemporary architectural debate and profession. Typically, students will have a strong motivation and interest in architectural history, arts, and contemporary culture.


Modalità di valutazione

The exam is oral and will consist in the presentation of the project with panels, books and physical models; there are no bibliographic alternatives to the design developed during the year. The evaluation of the final design will be based on the group's performance. 

The course is single and fully integrated and requires mandatory and continuous presence of participating students during the semester. There is no assistance after the semester conclusion.

Deliverables will consist in a research booklet, project panels and models,to be defined with each group.
