Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The goals of the Studio are: on the one hand, to experiment with the complexity of the design process, from the design to the realisation, by acquiring knowledge about the relationships between technological, energetic, environmental and structural aspects; on the other hand, to illustrate the cognitive, methodological, organizational and procedural tools in the different stages of the construction process, both for new construction and for building renovation. Since from the first phases of studio activity particular attention is paid to functional, constructive and environmental choices in relation to energy design and plant engineering.


Risultati di apprendimento attesi

Students:

- gain knowledge and understanding of the tools and techniques for technological, environmental and installation design, in compliance with the current regulatory framework;

- are capable of coordinating in the design different construction issues respecting environmental, physical, regulatory and cultural constraints;

- are capable of providing a coordinated and multidisciplinary management of the technological, energetic-environmental and structural themes of the design, on the base of priority requirements, decisions anticipation and evaluation of the various available technical options and of the application of the tools to support design decisions.

OBJECTIVE
The goals of the Construction and Sustainable Design (section A) Studio are on the one hand, to experiment with the complexity of the design process, from the design to the realization, by acquiring knowledge about the relationships between technological, energetic, environmental and structural aspects; on the other hand, to illustrate the cognitive, methodological, organizational and procedural tools in the different stages of the construction process, both for new construction and for building renovation. Since from the first phases of studio activity, particular attention is paid to functional, constructive, and environmental choices in relation to energy design and technical systems.

 

RESULTS PROVIDED

Students:

  • acquire knowledge and understanding of the tools and techniques for technological, environmental and installation design, in compliance with the current regulatory framework;
  • are capable of coordinating different construction issues in the design respecting environmental, physical, regulatory and cultural constraints;
  • can provide a coordinated and multidisciplinary management of the technological, energetic-environmental, and structural themes of the design, based on priority requirements, decisions anticipation and evaluation of the various available technical options and the application of the tools to support design decisions.

 C+SD Studio (Section A) Students will be pushed to design their didactical project according to the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

 

TOPICS

The Construction and Sustainable Design (Section A) (C+SD_24 Studio) joins the following subjects:

Technological and Environmental Design (Associate Prof. Luca Maria Francesco Fabris)

+

Building Physics - Energy Design (Associate Prof. Rajendra Singh Adhikari)

 

C+SD_24 Studio, held in English language, is conducted in parallel to the following International Studios: Studio Project course held by Prof. Susumu Uno and Prof. Nina Funahashi at the Department of Architecture, Daido University (Nagoya, Japan) and the Studio Project course in Landscape Architecture Theory and Practice held by Prof. Fu Fan at the School of Architecture and Urban Planning, Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture - BUCEA (Beijing, China).

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/C+SD_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 green utopias with green-architecture prototypes, creating a new kind of ‘rural and networking’ community.

 

PROGRAM

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.

According to the suggestions coming from the Protection and Development Plan of the West Mountain and Yongding River Cultural Belt by Beijing Municipal Cultural Heritage Bureau, that will support the C+SD_24 Studio program, Students will propose for these villages a project to enhance the local tourism development through acupuncture architectonical interventions.

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.

 

CONTENT

Within Technological and Environmental Design subject, students are called to respond to the relationships between green-built and light-massive as characterizing elements of the technological constructive nodes and their architectonical design, with attention to some sustainable features viz. solar gain, air circulation, cycle and recycle of the water, climate change, recovery and energy saving and use of high innovative value building materials. The students will be guided in the planning of built structures, throughout the application of documents and relative drawings from the concept to the preliminary, definitive, and executive design.

The activity of the C+SD_24 Studio is focusing also on Building Physics - Energy Design subject, with the aim to provide students method and tools able to support the design of low carbon communities in the framework of urban regeneration processes, also in the context of rapid evolution of regulations on building energy efficiency (nZEB targets). The concepts and advanced design tools will be introduced for the development of an environmental conscious approach in the building energy design (solar access, envelope and technical systems) for providing adequate thermal and visual comfort. Special emphasis will be given on the rational use of energy and the use of low energy technologies and renewable energy sources in the design process. The final objective is the design of net zero emission communities (nZEC).

C+SD_24 Studio focuses in merging the knowledge of these two subjects in a unique project where the ‘aesthetical and design aspects’ 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 are expected to obtain the desired and required performances operating through knowledge and design.

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).

Students are invited to guarantee the maximum interaction during all the in-room compulsory activities of the C+SD_24 Studio (lectures, discussions and tutored design and research activities).

 

SDG Keywords: Decent work and Sustainable economic growth; Education facilities; Energy efficiency; Equal opportunities; Gender equality; Greenhouse GHG mitigation; International cooperation; Renewable energy resource; Sustainable and Green technologies; Sustainable urban design, architecture design, landscape design.

 

More literature will be suggested during the lectures.
