21002001 - BUILDING TECHNOLOGY STUDIO

To apply the knowledge gained in the course of materials and construction elements, introducing the relationship between architectural form and construction techniques in the experimental design, to provide basic knowledge designed to develop a critical awareness about the integration between: functional adequacy
with respect to the use and environment project; constructive correctness compared to energy, technical, productive and economic resources.

Programme

The Architectural Construction Laboratory addresses the technological design of buildings by combining the aspects inherent to their technological definition with those related to user needs, construction, and environmental sustainability. The contents are defined with the aim of making students exercise both in the application of knowledge already acquired on materials and construction techniques and in the study of innovative technological solutions aimed at environmental design towards Nearly Zero Energy Buildings.
Through exercises with an increasing degree of complexity, the Laboratory deals with the design from the technological and constructive point of view of the main elements (structure, envelope, roof, wall, etc.), due to their structural and energy-environmental behavior, of materials employees and related building techniques.
The Laboratory is organized in didactic units:
• UD1 (1st part) _ The technological system: performance approach of technological design, classification of the technological system, building process.
• UD2 (1st part) _ The elements of the technological system: technological characteristics of the elements of the building structure, ground connection, vertical and horizontal envelope, in relation to the expected figurative outcomes consistent with the project.
• UD3 (2nd part) _The requirements and constructive configurations of the technological system: constructive and functional conception based on the main requirements (accessibility, fire safety, and equipment).
• UD4 (2nd part) _The building and the context: environmental characteristics, functional structures, and bioclimatic behavior of the building.
• UD5 (3rd part)_The construction nodes: technological design of the most important nodes, designed to represent the relationship and the technical-constructive feasibility of the elements of the structure and the envelope, vertical and horizontal.
The experience of the school building site is an integral part of the Architectural Construction Laboratory and will take place in the months of May-June at the Training Center for Building Masters in Rome and Province in Pomezia.

Type of delivery of the course

The Architectural Construction Laboratory deals with in-depth design of the main elements of a building (structure, opaque and transparent, horizontal and vertical envelope) through the study of case studies, the comparison and evaluation of alternative technological solutions, the representation in detail of the most significant elements of the project. To this aim the Laboratory is organized in: lessons (knowledge and understanding); classroom exercises, related to the lesson (practical application); on-site exercises (direct experience at the training site of the Training Center for Building Masters in Pomezia).

Attendance

Participation in the Laboratory requires attendance, with attendance of no less than 75%. The presence will be recorded in the classroom by signing or the elaboration of the exercise linked to the lesson of the day.

Type of evaluation

The verification of learning takes place through ongoing assessments related to the exercises carried out in the classroom and to the required design elaborations. The evaluation during the exam will consider the evaluations obtained during the Laboratory and will take place with a discussion on the drawings presented and on the technical contents of the Laboratory. Required documents: General project with plans, sections and elevations on a scale appropriate to the size of the building and, in any case, not less than 1: 200; detail sections in scale from 1:50 to 1: 5; comparative tables of alternative and design technological solutions.

Programme

The Building Technology Studio addresses the technological design of buildings by combining the aspects related to environmental sustainability with those of the construction configuration. The contents are defined with the aim of making the students exercise both in the application of the knowledge already acquired on materials and construction techniques, and in the study of technological solutions aimed at environmental design towards Nearly Zero Energy Buildings.
Through exercises with an increasing degree of complexity, the Studio deals with the design from the technological and constructive point of view of the main elements (structure, envelope, roof, wall, etc.), due to their structural and energy-environmental behavior, of materials employees and related building techniques.
The Laboratory is organized in three teaching units:
• UD1_Functions and context: environmental characteristics of the site and accessibility, functional structures and bioclimatic behavior of the building;
• UD2_Structure and typology: organization of the structural system, also due to the main issues concerning fire safety and the presence of plants;
• UD3_Envelope and nodes: definition of the technological characteristics of the vertical and horizontal, opaque and transparent, envelope elements, technological design of the most important nodes, in relation to the expected figurative outcomes consistent with the project.
