21002034-2 - ARCHITECTURAL TECHNOLOGY

The design studio’s goal is to achieve a product comparable to what the Italian legislation usually defines as “final design”. It is, in other words, to put students in conditions, starting from the needs of the construction, to manage the simultaneous presence of specialist contributions (composition, structural, regulations, technological, environmental, technical physics, economic) involved in an achievable architectural project.

Programme

The design studio’s goals for the building construction design are to increase the students awareness of the complex transformation process of an architectural idea in a real building. The student competence to create coherence regarding content and design subject is our main aims.

Type of delivery of the course

Two main aspect will be investigated during the design development: • analysys and verify the building features like, thermal aspects, air and water tightness, sun protection, …. • detail design. The main part of the building will be developed till the working drawings scale. BIM as a work tool. We use a BIM tool to control the project and also to evaluate it. BIM technology allow the integration of structural, construction an mechanics in the same file. 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. In particular, the following methods will apply: The course will take place remotely on the Teams platform. lecture presentations are available on the One Drive course for students. Exercises are held on the topics of the course that students upload to One Drive according to an established schedule. The reviews of the exercises and the progress of the project are carried out remotely and visible by all students of the course. During the course the development of the project in BIM is foreseen, for this purpose Tutorials are available for students and specific sessions on the use of Revit software are held. 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.

Attendance

Students must attend at the least the 75% of lessons to be admitted to the final exam

Type of evaluation

Oral presentation and project discussion 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. In particular, the following methods will apply: The exam will take place remotely on the Teams platform. Candidates will present the summary of the work done in the laboratory with a screen presentation. The exam commission will evaluate the students' preparation through an interview after the presentation of the work.

Programme

The aim of the Building Technology Module is to provide all the appropriate tools for students to manage design relations between materials, building elements, working techniques, requirements and regulations involved since the concept design. All that fully aware of the strong link between typological-stylish features and technological-architectural ones of the building conceived as a whole of interrelated and organized parts, according to a systemic and performance design approach.
To this end, the program is divided into three parts:
1_in the first part, and with reference to examples of contemporary architecture, the main technological solutions are examined with particular attention to structural elements (foundations, vertical and horizontal structures, floors) and envelope;
2 in the second part, manufacturers of building components will be asked to illustrate to the students the technical characteristics useful for the elaboration of the design project;
3_the third part will be dedicated to design project reviews.

Type of delivery of the course

The Building Technology Module 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 Module is organized in: lessons (knowledge and understanding); classroom exercises, related to the lesson (practical application). 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. In particular, the following methods will be applied: lessons and revisions of students' papers in synchronous mode on the Teams platform made available by the university.

Attendance

La presenza sarà registrata in aula con firma o consegna dell’esercizio svolto e relativo alla lezione del giorno.

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 final exam will consider the assessments in progress and will be based on an oral interview starting from the final project elaboration. n the event of an extension of the health emergency from COVID-19, they will receive all the provisions that regulate the methods for carrying out the teaching activities and students' evaluation. In particular, the following methods are applied: evaluation of the ongoing exercises and of the final drawings to be uploaded on the University repository (OneDrive); oral discussion on the works produced during the course via the Teams platform.
