Learning objectives 

D1 - Knowledge and understanding
In-depth knowledge about different disciplines, theoretical, methodological and operative. Advanced ability to read historical architectural text.
D2 - Applying knowledge and understanding
Application of the foundations acquired in the development of the design exercise.
D3 - Making judgements
Ability to develop autonomous judgments based on the reading of the existing architecture and its context in order to regenerate them.
D4 - Communication skills
Ability to communicate the knowledge acquired and the design assumptions, both at graphic and textual level.
D5 - Learning skills
Ability to rework and transfer the acquired knowledge also to other contexts, related to the built and the existing city.

Check the application design methodologies acquired, with reference to the existing architecture. Comparison with other disciplines of architecture. Feasibility study by regulatory and legislative point of view.


Architectural Design Laboratory III.


The Architectural Restoration Course 2 fits within a design lab, setting up a dialogue with other architecture-making disciplines.
It's about working in a field where different training contributions converge towards a single topic / subject, posing new questions, problems , correlations, insights, insights, possible answers.
While in the first course, the methodological paths of project construction to the existing ones have been developed and clarified, even through exemplary but schematic applications, in this second disciplinary experience it will be possible for them to be continually deepened and at the same time their conceptual and operational extension, be it with reference to theoretical reflection and practice, affinining its methods and tools.

Teaching format 

Lectures, conferences, seminars, tutorials.

End-of-course test 

The final verifies design exercise, carried out in groups, and whose evaluation will be carried out especially considering the "reviewing diary", drawn up by the teacher and his collaborators.
This review will focus primarily on the knowledge attained by groups of students than the choices you make on the methodological consistency of the design process developed, concerning the correctness of proposals made with reference to the preservation and enhancement of existing.
The assessment will be common to all group members.

Other information 

More specific references will be given in class.
Other information, as well as the teaching materials, will be made available by teacher on the Moodle platform.
