Syllabus
Prerequisites: In order to attend the course, students should already have attended the courses up to the third year of the master degree programme, and preferably have passed the exams.
In particular, knowledge and skills acquired in the following courses are considered essential, though not mandatory: Architectural and Urban Composition I and II and Design Studios; History of Architecture and History of Contemporary Architecture.
Target skills and knowledge: The main aim of the course is acquiring and developing knowledge about theories, techniques and methods of analysis, interpretation and design of today's city. Teaching and learning activities will focus on theories of architectural and urban design nowadays, as well as on composition techniques regarding functional layouts and formal composition of space, according to which the city is defined in elements, parts or layers.
Furthermore, the course aims at boosting transeversal skills, such as indipendent critical thinking, capability to communicate and fully explain one's project along with its conceptual fundamentals, awareness of one's role as a professional in complex contexts, as well as the capability to cope with complex problems and to control and solve them through ground-breaking and non-ordinary methodologies.
Examination methods: To be defined.
Course unit contents: Teaching considers the project of a urban area as working tool, rather than as a mere goal. Students are expected to control the process of formal definition on different topics and at different scales.
Object of study will be peri-urban areas of Padua.
