Prerequisites: Knowledge of representation systems (orthogonal projections, axonometry, perspective); skills with 2D and 3D drawing, knowledge of rendering softwares.
Target skills and knowledge: It provides the main knowledge of parametric representation - with an introduction about "semantic" modeling - and the fundamental skills for realization of the designed architecture through software BIM (Building Information Modeling). It is introduced the algorithmic modeling, useful for the interpretation of the surfaces from a geometric/configurative point of view. The course introduces the undertsanding and representation of the architectural details and their role onto the project organization.
Examination methods: Oral examination:
1) presentation of the final graphic works,
2) two questions for each of the following points / final graphic works (or combinations thereof):

A. Rondelet / Frezier,
B. Use of methodological tools (Revit / Dynamo),
C. Laboratory graphic works,
D1. Own group presentation about Eastman book,
D2. Presentations of other groups
Assessment criteria: The final evaluation criteria will take into account:

a) the contribution to the comparison on the topics of the course and the related insight analysis;
b) the commitment and involvement in laboratory activities,
c) the graphic and organizational quality of the final graphic works,
d) the ability to represent the theme of the year in an effective and communicative way,
e) the ability to relate on what is formed and learned with correct terminology and language properties.
Course unit contents: executive drawing:
Graphic guidelines to prepare of the executive drawings of a design.
drafting of a "bird's eye" axonomotric view.
Organization of drawings:
substructure drawings (Tav. 1), structural drawings (tav. 2), distribution plan (Tav. 3), implants plan.
Software for the project: Revit and BIM.
Introduction to the algorithm 3D modeling, with applications re-modeling stereotomic vaults.

Detalis drawings:
detail drawings of reinforced concrete structure: plinth, pillar, beam and its reinforcement (Tav. 4)
detail drawings of reinforced concrete structure:
vertical connections, stairs (Tav. 5)

Software for the project: Revit and BIM.
Introduction to the algorithm 3D modeling, with applications re-modeling stereotomic vaults.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: The course is organized with a series of lectures on theoretical arguments, accompanied by class exercises and by workshops for the independent development of topics and themes of the year, agreed with the Laboratory of the History of Contemporary Architecture. The drawings produced are configured as Learning assessment. It will then carry out "on-going" learning checks by analyzing the chapters of the Eastman book, through group presentation.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Will be provided to students:
- Bibliographic reference;
- Tutorial;
- Documents and drawings, which students can rely on to achieve the goals.
