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 aim of the course 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.

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); remote classroom exercises, related to the lesson (practical application).

Attendance

COMPULSORY at 75% of the hours

Type of evaluation

Oral exam, project evaluation and evaluation in progress Exam papers: 1. Presentation regarding the evolution of the project, through the correct exercises, highlighting the changes introduced in the project (before and after) 2. plans, elevations and sections. Scale 1: 100 3. Axonometry and axonometric sections obtained from Revit model (structure only, complete model) 4. Excerpts of significant parts of your project. Sky earth section and relative excerpt of elevation and plan scale 1:20

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.

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 elaboration on the exercise linked to the lesson of the day.

Type of evaluation

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.
