055795 - URBAN AND LANDSCAPE REGENERATION STUDIO
The URBAN AND LANDSCAPE REGENERATION STUDIO is aimed at experimenting at different scales (from environment to building) an approach to urban regeneration design based on the principles of sustainability, focusing on the use of renewable energy and in general promoting a sensible use of social, cultural and material resources. The three integrated teaching modules of Environmental Technology, General Ecology and Landscape as Heritage will develop some key issues in the field of conservation and sustainability relate to each other in the context of historic sites, testing environmental design tools in relation to the ecological approach.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
More specifically students will acquire
- tools to promote a design approach focused on the relationships between the buildings, the people living and acting inside and around them, the multi-faceted qualities of the physical environment;
- understanding of the relationship between environment, technology and design, the knowledge of the existing connections between the design phase, the construction process and material/energy exchanges with the environment along the life cycle of buildings and infrastructures;
- capability of making design choices according to the environmental, economic and social context, providing effective solutions focused on the sustainability of the entire building process, in a life-cycle perspective;
- awareness in proposing design methods and approaches capable to support the ecological transition in a climate change perspective.
The built environment is understood as the specific ecological system of the human species. Humans build up their settlements over time, modifying and adapting the physical environment according to their needs, shaping the landscape in a continuous process that evolves with society. The Studio offers a robust sustainability approach to design and construction, promoting a vision away from a carbon-based globalised economy, which damages our ecosystem (desertification, forest depletion, water and air pollution, destruction of agricultural land and cultural and material Heritage). The proposed approach favours a circular, locally rooted economy based on renewable energy and sensible use of social, cultural and material resources.
The educational program is closely linked to several of the UN SDGs. The primary reference is Goal 11 – Sustainable cities and communities, with specific foci on inclusive and sustainable green public spaces, protection and safeguard of cultural and natural Heritage, mitigation and adaptation to climate change, public transport and pedestrian safety for all, and run-off water control. It also explores the urban design implications of G 9 – Infrastructure, industrialisation, G12 – Responsible consumption and production, and G 13 – Climate Action.
The Technological Environmental Design - TED module will mainly deal with:
- performance appraisal of the built environment: open urban spaces and existent buildings as an actual resource embodying many different values;
- appraisal of the environmental quality of the morphological characters of the built environment (intermediate spaces, arcades, shade and sunlight, greenery, shading devices, natural ventilation, and lighting) and the "naturally" well-tempered urban open spaces;
- the "ground-level approach" to the design of urban open public spaces and the pursuit of urban comfort and delight;
- the main factors of urban micro-climate determining comfort/discomfort conditions in open urban spaces and their implications on design;
- essential elements in designing blue and green infrastructures in open urban spaces (Sustainable Urban Draining systems).
The General Ecology – GE module aims to provide students with conceptual and operational tools to understand the interactions among organisms and between the organisms and their environment and how human activities increasingly affect those interactions.
The main topics covered by the module are:
- physical environment (atmosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere) and basic concepts of ecology;
- fundamental ecological processes (abiotic and biotic interactions, primary production, secondary production, decomposition, energy and matter flows)
- sustainability (basic concepts, metrics, life cycle thinking) and global challenges (climate change, planetary boundaries)
- urban ecosystems (rural-urban gradient, landscape fragmentation, effects of urbanisation on the physical and biological environment, responses of organisms and biodiversity to urbanisation, biodiversity and ecosystem services in the city).
The Landscape as Heritage - LaH module focuses on how the two critical issues of conservation and sustainability relate to each other in the context of historical sites. The module aims to provide students with basic knowledge, cultural premises and methodologies to approach the conservation of cultural Heritage (both buildings and landscape), increasing the students' understanding of the Italian culture on Heritage, specifically attention to the urban landscape of open public spaces.
The module will focus on:
- landscape as a system at different scales (reading and assessing historical transformations);
- conservation and enhancement of tangible and intangible cultural Heritage.
Keywords: sustainable urban design; sustainable built environment and landscape design; green infrastructures; cultural and natural Heritage; well-being; sustainable resource management; sustainable consumption; climate change adaptation.

Modalità di valutazione
The final evaluation will take place at the exam, which shall consist for each group in the presentation and discussion of all the deliverables required.
At the end of course presentation before the July exam appeal, ALL groups will be requested to present and discuss their work. A critique session will follow, and suggestions for the final exam will be given.
The final mark will be assigned at the exam. Groups will be requested to deliver their work online a few days before; deliverables will be examined and discussed with the group on the exam day. ALL members of each group must know and be able to explain every part of the group work. Each student will be required to submit a small, individual work, related to the group project, which could change the individual mark.
Each group and group member will be free to present their work in any of the scheduled exam session. PLEASE NOTE that in any case, NO FURTHER REVIEWS will be made after the end of the regular Studio term. The teaching staff recommends working as much as possible in the classroom and regularly attending the reviews that will take place continuously during the term.
The Studio detailed schedule and all further detailed instructions will be given in due course and published on the BeeP page of the Studio.
Please note that, as in all studio courses, compulsory attendance is required.
