Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The primary goal of the course is to finalize skills in dynamic and interactive representation of urban space for design, from the architectural to the city scale. In this sense, the educational and research activities conducted by the Urban Simulation Laboratory "Fausto Curti" of the Politecnico di Milano, will be fundamental. Applications of novel tools for urban design and planning practice will be explored along the course; in particular, students will make use of immersive Virtual Reality solutions.


Risultati di apprendimento attesi

At the end of the course, as an outcome both of lectures and practical experiments according to 'learn by doing' (Schön) principles, in the final oral interview students are expected to demonstrate:

- awarness on effectiveness of spatial models in the phases of analysis and design of architectural and urban design projects;

- awarness of the relationship between plan structure and three-dimensional urban from the experiential point of view;

- capability to use tools for urban simulation describing urban projects across different media.


Argomenti trattati

In terms of contents, the course aims at linking the themes of morphological analysis and urban design to those of perception and communication: the traditional principles of modeling will be expanded towards a combined use of both physical and digital models, capable of exploring and depicting both conceptual and experiential aspects of the urban environment.

Lectures are complemented by practical experiments according to 'learn by doing' (Schön) principles. This approach will test the effectiveness of spatial models in the phases of analysis and design of architectural and urban design projects, in order to study and verify morphological and spatial relationships. Moreover, it will investigate the relationship between plan structure and three-dimensional urban form from the experiential point of view. Thus, for example, the view of public space and of the built environment from the street, will be enriched by the representation of some contextual conditions such as solar radiation at different stages of the day and seasons; these aspects will be tackled in a dynamic crux, aiming at reading the outcomes connected to the everyday experience of the city.

In addition, beyond providing the theoretical perspective necessary for a conscious use of simulation techniques in the analytical, planning, and sharing phases of design projects, the course also aims at stimulating the development of a critical view of the simulations that describe urban projects across different media.

The course will develop a case study application that will be used to put in practice and verify the fruitful application of the theoretical background. The course will be therefore organized in lectures and laboratory activities (exercises). Collective periodic reviews will be made.

Below you can find the basic bibliography of the course. Other references will be provided during the class.

Non-attending students will have to define the exam modality with the professors at the very beginning of the course.

Prerequisiti

The course is located at the beginning of the MSc path and is conceived to merge together students with different previous formative
experiences and provide them a common ground. Therefore no specific prerequisites are required.


Modalità di valutazione

The course will develop a case study application that will be used to put in practice and verify the fruitful application of the theoretical background. The course will be therefore organized in lectures and laboratory activities (exercises). Collective periodic reviews will be made and in the final exam students are required to show all the graphical and theoretical materials elaborated during the course.

Non-attending students will have to define the exam modality with the professors at the very beginning of the course.
