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).
What are we talking about when we talk about ‘interior architecture’? Are we comfortable with the term ‘interior architecture’ or is it rather merely useful as a simplified description of what we do? Does the distinction between ‘architecture’ and ‘interior architecture’ make sense at all? Does it allude to the fact that one discipline starts from the inside (the inhabitable space) while the other comes from the outside (the ‘external’ context)? Why don’t we then talk about ‘exterior architecture’ as opposed to ‘interior architecture’? Is that because the project never really stops outside but get to the inside? And again, why do we say ‘interior architecture’ when the project never concludes itself inside but projects itself outside? Is ‘transformation of the existing’ a better definition of our practice? Is that too abstract? Is it more open or even more accurate? Isn’t ‘acting upon existing buildings’ or - more precisely - ‘acting upon portions of existing buildings’ what we mostly do in our work?
The aim of the studio is to develop our knowledge and to take a critical stance on the discipline through the exercise of transforming part of an existing given building from the Milanese modern tradition. The studio will be organized in 3 parts: from the small to the big, from the particular to the general, from the inside to the outside, from the interior to the exterior.
