21002099 - CONSTRUCTION STUDIO

The structural design in relation to the historical built by qualitative and quantitative approaches. In the laboratory, the understanding of the structural aspects of the traditional construction follows the ideation of design solutions philologically consistent and effective from the mechanical point of view.

Type of delivery of the course

The course includes, in addition to the lectures, the development of a design theme that includes the analysis of elements of historical structures and eventually a consolidation intervention. 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.

Type of evaluation

The final exam consist in an oral discussion which also includes an examination of the elaborate products for the design theme. 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.
