OVERVIEW

Architecture Studio named “Architectural Design, Technology and Environment” has as main objective to develop architectural projects of different sizes, with a focus on the construction aspects and environmental sustainability. Morphological and technological choices are addressed jointly, with attention to low energy demand architectural solutions and to environmentally friendly materials, using tools for the environmental assessment.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

To learn how to develop a project while managing settlement, morphological, and technological choices, in a real physical and legislative context, with environmental sustainability as the main cultural background.

Teaching methods

Lessons on specific topics by the teachers and by invited researchers and professionals. Groups of students developing two projects of different size and complexity. Works assessment at the end of each semester and exam at the end of the year. 

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Building requalification, building envelope performances, renewable energy sources in architecture, near Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB), Bioclimatic design, wood building technologies, environmental assessment systems (LEED, ITACA), solar technologies.
