ProgrammeThe course programme consists of the design of a residential building with housing facilities in a consolidated urban context. In detail, it is required to develop a building organism composed of 60 housing units of different sizes for a total of about 7,500 sqm and services (small conference room, library, commercial services, common rooms) for a total of about 3,000 sqm.
The project should be developed by integrating technological issues as well as a reflection on costs that keep it in the context of affordable housing.
A critical approach to the theme is required that reflects on the typological theme starting from contemporary needs.

Type of delivery of the courseThe work is carried out in lectures and in seminar form with regular meetings to review the projects for examination. The project can be carried out in groups of a maximum of two students.
AttendanceAttendance is compulsory for 75% of the lesson hours
Type of evaluationFor the final exam, the production of an adequate number of graphic works, drawings and models on an urban and detailed scale of the architectural organism is required (1:500; 1:100)
ProgrammeThe architectural design laboratory 3, located at the end of the three-year degree course, will focus on the design of a medium-sized building with a predominantly residential function, integrated with spaces for commerce and other services, in an empty area of the consolidated urban zone of the city of Rome. The project will be confronted with an articulated urban landscape and will have to evaluate all the aspects related to the insertion of an architectural organism within an existing context. We must consider, as main themes of reasoning: the evaluation of the settlement principle and the typological, morphological and spatial characteristics of the organism in relation to those present in the context in which it is inserted, the relationship with the public space and with the infrastructure system present in the immediate vicinity. At the same time the building will have to give answers to the theme of living, proposing housing solutions that are the result of an updated thought on new ways of life and new housing needs. The project will be developed on a scale that will allow both a definition of the technological and structural characteristics of the organism and an economic evaluation of a parametric type.

Type of delivery of the courseThe planned project will be carried out mainly in the classroom. Should the corona virus emergency persist, the Laboratory will use the Moodle platform at: https://architettura.el.uniroma3.it/course/search.php?q=Laboratorio+di+progettazione+architettonica&areaids=core_course-course for communications and the loading of programs, materials and lessons and the Zoom Meeting platform for lessons. The project activity will be divided into five phases, with related activities: - Analytical phase: site inspection, analysis of the context with particular with regard to: size of the area, altimetry and exposure, quantitative and qualitative characteristics of the surrounding building fabric, particularly significant emergencies, vehicular, pedestrian and cycle paths and its possible needs and transformations, presence or absence of primary public services, presence of areas greens and public meeting spaces, detection of any deficiencies and needs to be compensated with the project.- Instrumental phase: realization of the basic drawings necessary for the project: sections of the area, 3d, models of the project area including the built-up area surrounding. - Project setting phase: elaboration of several settlement solutions with the choice of the overall conformation of the intervention and the positioning of the building volumes on the area, the functional mix and residential typologies, the conformation of the non-built spaces. study of housing solutions and their distribution - Representation of the project through the documents necessary for the description of the solution adopted, both graphically and through models.
AttendanceAttendance at the course is mandatory for 75%
Type of evaluationOral exam and project evaluation. The exam will take place in presence or remotely on the Zooms portal if the restrictions due to Covid-19 persist. In this second case, the student must deliver the graphic designs of the project proposal 24 hours before the exam, in high resolution PDF format, via we transfer (or similar) to the following e-mail addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org ; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org. The project will be accompanied by a 1: 500 model that will be assessed through photographic images inserted in the tables and via webcam. The student will be called to describe the characteristics of the project, from its basic philosophy, to the detailed solutions. The requested documents will be specified during the final phase of the Laboratory. In principle, the project must be represented in order to describe the insertion of the intervention within the city (1: 2000; 1: 500), the type-morphological system adopted (1: 200), the housing solutions adopted (1:50) and the technological and material solutions developed (1:20).
ProgrammeThe course aims to design a building with a complex program starting from the demolition of an existing building according to the most current methods of transforming the consolidated urban fabrics of our cities.
The student is asked to develop a project strategy taking into account the innumerable restrictions and limits that come from the immediate urban context.
During the project development, the student will also have to deal with constructive technological and project evaluation issues. For this purpose, a 1:50 scale study of the building's cross section will be required, in order to deepen the design aspects related to the choices of technological detail.
Core DocumentationDuring the Laboratorio students will be gives general references and case studies related to the main project features.
Type of delivery of the courseThe Laboratory is structured according to a cycle of lectures whose objective is to provide a basic knowledge of the laboratory's design theme and to deepen the aspects related to the architectural project to be developed. Subsequently, the work of drafting the project will proceed according to a series of progress states agreed from time to time and verified in subsequent revisions. The Laboratory will proceed by work phases: at the end of each block of the development phase, a general review of all aspects of the project is organized, to verify the progress of the work and compliance with the required requirements. Students will carry out part of the work autonomously and part during laboratory hours, with revisions on request. The activity will mainly revise the projects AND refine its various aspects, according to a set of two-dimensional and three-dimensional designs aimed at illustrating the various aspects and details of the project. In the case of an extension of the health emergency from COVID-19, all the provisions that regulate the methods of carrying out the teaching activities and student assessment will be implemented.
AttendanceThe lessons according to the general epidemiological situation will take place in the traditional way, remotely or in a mixed way.
Type of evaluationThe final evaluation of the project will be based on the one hand on the progress of the reviews supported by the student during the course of the laboratory and on the effectiveness of the final presentation of the exam; on the other, it will be based on the ability to integrate the construction and assessment aspects of the project into the project proposal. In the case of an extension of the health emergency from COVID-19, all the provisions that regulate the methods of carrying out the teaching activities and student assessment will be implemented.
