The laboratory deals with the architectural project from the point of view of the internal space. As a founding phenomenon, independent of the scale to which it is applied, it is characterized by particular attention to its users and their gestures of relationship and openness to others and to the world; it is captured and determined as a concrete body built, in dynamics, verified down to the scale of detail, between its built-in margins, the light that animates it, the furnishings that equip it, the materials and the decorative elements that qualify it; aims to define a precise identity of each place, in the dialectic between space plant, figuration, sizing, structural aspects, environmental control, energy performance. The Studio pays particular attention to the recovery of the existing and often fragile building and architectural heritage, interpreting the themes of contemporary living, from those of the residence to those of complex and multifunctional organisms for culture, museum systems and social life, up to those of the redevelopment and equipment of the open spaces.
The disciplinary integrations that characterize each section (Architectural design, Architectural technology, Landscape architecture, Restoration, Urban design) allow, in the intertwining of the theoretical contents of each discipline, different thematic angles and design variations explained in the individual programs.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
According to the Dublin Descriptors (DD), passing the exam certifies the acquisition of the following results:
DD 1, knowledge and understanding:
- knowledge of the fundamental elements of interior architecture and its methods of application in the design process for the purpose of transforming inhabited places and spaces.
DD 2, ability to apply knowledge and understanding:
- ability to control the compositional aspects of the project and its typological and functional features, which regulate the qualitative relationships of the architectural forms of the space.
DD 3 (autonomy of judgment), 4 (communication skills) and 5 (learning ability):
- ability to operate and communicate independently the design choices made (DD 3, 4 and 5).
We focus on architecture and habitation culture that are thought out “starting from the inside”.
Interior design has always been profoundly Italian territory. Italian culture was the first to assimilate, in a genetic sense, the idea of stratifying material within an interior. It was Italian culture that assorbed the notion of interpreting space has a logical chain that could smouthly ferry the culture of habitation from a recent past to an immediate future.
Working in pairs, the students must redesign a number of single-family houses while attempting to transcribe their often obsolete layouts, reflecting the inevitable modifications that have taken place in the functions of habitation. The course will be connected to the class of prof. Matteo Moscatelli (Architectural Design) where interactions of these different typologies with the use of public space will be developed.
In this workshop time is divided into a ratio between theory and design that is one-third and two-thirds. We assign single-family houses always different ones. Each of them supplies a specific response to the relation between indoors and out; between outlets and utility lines; between built-in furniture and the moveable kind. They are all examples from the second half of the 20th century , or from the preceding decade, chosen according to very diverse periods and places in order to generate design gymnastics that are not only historical and critical but also from an anthropologically broad base.
