Le Collaborative Classes costituiscono un modello innovativo di insegnamento curriculare e di apprendimento che prevede la collaborazione on line di un docente del Politecnico di Milano e di un docente di un'università estera, accompagnati dalle rispettive classi.

Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The challenges posed by the change in contemporary landscape require to integrate and connect skills of different knowledge under the umbrella of sustainability such as landscape architecture, urban planning, ecology, architecture, social sciences, etc...

The course “Metabolism of City and Landscape” aims to integrate technology and culture mainly for the recovery of a territorial heritage and the regeneration of a suburban area.

The student become aware of the strategies and techniques for the recovery of the derelict areas (post-industrial, post-agricultural, shrinking urban fabrics) that fill the contemporary landscape, taking count of the limited resources available and the possibility of their use/management in an efficient, sufficient and resilient way on a territorial scale and how to combine conflicting requests for a sustainable approach.

 


Risultati di apprendimento attesi

At the end the students, through the contributes given through lectures, workshops, and field visits, will be able to understand the notion of metabolism applied to contemporary cities and landscape, and to manage the complexity of sustainability, namely the knowledge necessary to design and manage the transformations of the contemporary landscape.

They will use an evaluation protocol to understand where to best allocate the limited resources available for a transformation of a portion of landscape.

In accordance with the 5 Dublin descriptors:

1 - Knowledge and understanding: The students will be guided in bettering their knowledge and understanding of the subjects involved in the course by the teachers and their collaborators who will help students to manage the complexity of the sustainable transformation of the landscape;

2 - Applying knowledge and understanding: The students will develop their own research on Metabolism through flipped-classes, speak and tell demonstrations, and detailed design and methodologic proposals);

3 - Making judgements: The students will be encouraged in checking their own results and develop their own judgment capacities through analysis and workshop reports;

4 - Communication skills: students, divided in groups of max. 3 individuals, will prepare 2 oral presentations on their research work progresses in relation to the Course brief, to be discussed and evaluated in a public discussion (mid-term presentations);

5 - Learning skills: students will demonstrate their completed skills at the final exam, when there will be a public oral discussion with teachers and tutoring staff about the course results (Assessment of final test delivered as video-clips, tables, and written reports) obtained during the supported and autonomous learning activities.

THIS COURSE PARTICIPATES TO THE COLLABORATIVE CLASS PILOT PROJECT

Partner University: BUCEA Beijing University Civil Engineering and Architecture (Beijing - China), Professor LI Mengyixin.

The professors (Fabris and Erba for Polimi and Li for BUCEA) of both universities will actively collaborate during the activities of the integrated course following a defined calendar in which a part of the course will be specifically dedicated to the study of urban metabolism and innovative and sustainable solutions for the redevelopment of post-industrial and / or marginal areas in the urban environment to allow students to know, deepen and make their own the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) introduced by the United Nations.

The collaborative activities foresee for both parties (Polimi and BUCEA) the provision of interdisciplinary lectures starting from the three scientific fields of Environmental Technology (Fabris), Territorial Resources Design and Management (Erba) and Landscape Architecture (Li) that address the SDGs and specify the meaning of the keywords they introduce; the preparation of in-depth transdisciplinary seminars (with invitations to internal and external experts at the two universities) to stimulate, through an open debate, the interest of students and guided tours 'live' from similar places or sites that demonstrate the application of technologies and applied strategies of landscape redevelopment of considerable interest present in Milan and Beijing and in other national or international locations.

Students from both universities will work in integrated groups, developing a cognitive process also based on peer learning and flipped class activities. The result of the work conducted jointly by the students will lead to the production of short video clips that will present the didactic research conducted and the reasons given for the definition of a strategy suitable for the activation of a resilient and conscious project starting from the ideal program underlying the keywords to the various UN SDGs.

Furthermore, the production of descriptive reports of the collaborative activities carried out will be required, followed by (self) critical evaluation of the learning path carried out during the Collaborative Class.

The teaching staff will guarantee moments of joint review throughout the development of the didactic project object of the course, whose prevalent multimedia characterization will allow the creation of a virtual library in which the projects carried out by groups of students will be made available to all through a special channel in network.


Obiettivi di sviluppo sostenibile - SDGs
Questo insegnamento contribuisce al raggiungimento dei seguenti Obiettivi di Sviluppo Sostenibile dell'Agenda ONU 2030:
  • SDG9 - INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
  • SDG11 - SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES
  • SDG17 - PARTNERSHIP FOR THE GOALS

Prerequisiti

Knowledge of the principles of sustainability declined in three dimensions: ecology, economy and society.

Knowledge of technical interaction between architecture and urban landscape.


Modalità di valutazione

The exam is oral, during the exam students will discuss on the contents of the lectures and the other didactic activities related to the course.

The course is elective, but students are invited to follow the lectures and the other didactic activities.

Students that will decide to not attend the lectures must define with teachers a specific literature to be discussed during the exam.

The attending students will be requested to present a visual exercise developed according to the contents of the course and under the supervision of the teachers.
