Syllabus
Target skills and knowledge: The course develops the theme of the residence, approaching the student to the complexity of the architectural design. A series of tutorials, in-depth at various scales with models and drawings will introduce, without delay, the course participants to become familiar with the practice of composition.
Course unit contents: Develop a strong curiosity and interest of students to our discipline of architectural composition is the first objective of the course in the second year .
Is well known that the job of the designers , it is a long apprenticeship to be made; it requires knowledge , passion, perseverance , experimentation, participation in long journeys , to acquire only a moderate maturity in dealing with the complexity of a job, today , made ​​it much more detailed and full of responsibility .
A travel sketches book accompanies the training throughout the year . Here, on paper , are recorded feelings , insights , experiences, group and individual visits . The passages of scale should be addressed gradually : a cabinet, a room , an apartment on multiple levels, a single house , until to get the design for a small urbanization. Domestic space is attacked from various angles : the theme is certainly more difficult to be taken into consideration for its many implications , but is also the most educational and academically useful for setting future experiences .
In parallel, with the first attempts to develop a good organization and formalization of the space, there is also the learning of those universal tools essential for deal with, without inhibition , any type of project : the freehand drawing , emphasizing perspectives, axonometric and split ; plastic work at different scales ; three-dimensional modeling programs , used in moderation, so as not to overly stimulate the virtual ; small building experiences at human scale .
This is the approach of course of architectural composition, which will attempt, in the next few years, to focus more and more towards the body perception instead of visual perception.
The virtual work must be able to go back to being , in the learning of the discipline, just a tool. Certainly it will not be the end of our research , aware that the good results you can measure and verify , as far as possible , only through a solid and real three-dimensional experimentation.
