Learning Objectives

  • Technical Architecture II

    The teaching allow students to confront and resolve the typological problems, distribution and technology that are the basis of architectural design and in particular the design of the building and its surroundings. The analysis is environmental and technological in order to satisfy user needs,evaluated in terms of performance and requirements. Lessons, laboratory and exercises will confront the various issues of building design from the scale of the building to the construction detail. A particular attention will be given to multi-family residential buildings.
