Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

Within the Studio, advanced methodologies are applied for the description and interpretation of the physical contexts and products - practical and theoretical - of contemporary architectural culture, with the aim of experimenting with the transformation of the built environment through the architectural project. The Studio are based on the integration of specific skills, in the field of architectural composition, with others from different fields of study such as, among others, of urban studies, interior architecture and architectural technology. In this way, the appropriate paradigms are outlined to know and understand, in historical perspective and at different scales, the inhabited space in its multiple configurations: morphological and typological, ecological and environmental, economic and social, anthropological and cultural. In the Studio, integrated knowledge allows you to modulate the choices made by the architectural project in relation to the complexity of the contexts in which it is applied and the technologies it implies. In this context, techniques, tools and methods acquired in the field of architectural design are used to investigate complex relationships such as those that are established between open spaces, built and relationship spaces, infrastructure and landscape, cultural heritage and neglected or vulnerable areas, technologies, materials and construction processes.

The didactic aim consists in preparing students for the task of improving the quality of human settlements, promoting the conscious use of resources and measuring the intrinsic fragility of the built environment.


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 the architectural composition 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).

TOPICS

The ADS_24 Studio integrates the following classes:

Architectural Design, Prof. Pietro Valle

Building Technology, Prof. Luca Maria Francesco Fabris

 

ADS24 Studio, held in English language, is conducted in parallel to the following International Studios: the Studio Project course held by Prof. Susumu Uno and Prof. Nina Funahashi at the Department of Architecture of Daido University (Nagoya, Japan) and the Studio in Landscape Architecture Theory and Practice Studio course held by Prof. Fu Fan at the School of Architecture and Urban Planning of the Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture (Beijing, China) and the Construction and Sustainable Design (section A) Studio C+SD_24 Studio) at the Milan Polytechnic held by Prof. Luca Maria Francesco Fabris and Prof. Rajendra Singh Adhikari.

These Studio Project classes have been contributing since 2007, under international cooperation, in an Italian-Japanese didactic project titled “C.Scape” (where “C” means Community, Constructions and Communication). In 2023-24 the international collaboration opens also to China, thanks to the participation of BUCEA to C.Scape.

 

 

Foreword

This year the C.Scape/ADS­_24 Studio Project deals with the current topic of architectural and environmental design taking in account what happened and is still happening due to the spread of Covid-19 pandemic together with the (re)discovering of the advantages to live in the countryside. The Studio aims is to find in this current adversity an ‘opportunity to re-think new ways of living and working’ in the rural environment according to a renovate optimistic feeling about the future for decent work and sustainable economic growth. Therefore, in this didactic project, Students will take up a Beijing outskirts former rural village area as project site and will plan some new collective services for the local inhabitants.

During their work, students must pay attention to the historical, architectural, multi-layered urban fabric of the some villages in the District of Shijingshan/Mentougou, introducing a reflection on value, importance, problems, and challenges in adding new architecture in a very complex and stunning historical landscape, that will be the background for a contemporary architectural project able to merge community ideals with ecological architecture prototypes, creating a new kind of ‘rural and networking’ community.

 

SITE

The design area lays in Beijing (China) in the District of Shijingshan/Mentougou, facing the Yongding River and along Historical Routes in West Beijing.

Students will propose for these villages a project to enhance the local tourism development through individual local architectonical interventions inserted in the existing rural settlement. The students are requested, according to the project brief, to study and develop proposals in a way in which aspects related to sustainable urban design, architecture design, landscape design and sustainable energy design are properly integrated.

 

PROGRAM

Within Architectural Design, students will study the functioning of the existing settlement and the rules that relate urban design, residential architectural design and public space. They will propose strategies to insert new activities that will enhance housing with collective services and “host” flexible dwellings that will integrate the local community by bringing tourism within the individual rural residences. A new kind of “rooted/open to the exterior” fabric will be studied and its application will have to adapt to preexisting condition. The project will therefore join urban design, architectural design and community renovation. They will also try to integrate working activities within a residential fabric to fond a new combination of work and leisure.

Italian, Japanese, and Chinese students within international cooperation will work on the same topic in a virtual workshop and will have the opportunity to interact on-line between them and with the teaching staff. Didactic materials will be available via the web and students will have to publish constantly their work progresses to make them visible to the others (teachers and students).

 

DESIGN METHOD

The Architectural Design studio stimulates plurality of themes and critical thinking through design assignments. Therefore, during the studio period, students will be exposed to a project that provokes multiple issues and requires relating them. At the beginning complexity will be induced by the instructors through the design brief. The successive assignments will enable students to find gradually their own approach to the problem in a way to enable them to construct a critical design process.

Architectural Design Studio focuses in merging the knowledge of architecture and technology in a unique project where the ‘aesthetical and design matters’ are developed together and in relation with the technical, energetic and structural features. In fact, the proposed buildings should properly satisfy the expected requirements and performances. In few words: even if buildings are complex, they are a whole, and we have to obtain the desired and required performances operating through knowledge and design.

 

PROCESS AND REQUIREMENTS

Students are invited to guarantee the maximum of interaction during all the in-room compulsory activities of the Architectural Design Studio (lectures, discussions and tutored design and research activities).

The project is divided in assignments that organize the design process in successive stages. Each partial assignment will be evaluated by the critics and will contribute to the final grade. Attendance is therefore required in the studio during all scheduled class periods. The instructors want to talk individually to each group at least once a week. Students will be evaluated mostly on conceptual clarity, design process and analytical skills as presented through drawings and models. Progression of the studio work during the design sequence is highly emphasized.

To pass the Architectural Design Studio, students, divided in groups of max. 3 individuals, will prepare oral presentations on their design work progression in relation to the Studio deadlines, to be discussed and evaluated in a public discussion .
