Syllabus
Prerequisites: For the understanding of the course's key contents, it is essential to have successfully passed the courses of: Architectural Drawing and Design Laboratory, Architectural Drawing 2 and Laboratory.
Target skills and knowledge: The course has the following knowledge and skills expected:

1. Knowing how to do the knowledge of the activity of analysis and knowledge of the building system starting from the preliminary design phase with development and articulation of the design, in the definitive and executive phases.

2. To Acquire the knowledge and the tools for formal, functional spatial and technological control of the building system in order to develop a methodology for the elaboration of the design in the preliminary, definitive and executive phases. The methodological approach to the design will be developed with particular attention to the principles of sustainability.

3. To Acquire the knowledge of the main construction techniques, with attention to the technological innovation of the same in relation to issues related to energy performance, lighting and acoustic insulation of buildings in accordance with current technical standards.
Examination methods: During the course the following exercises are proposed:
- Analysis and technological development of a design published on Italian or foreign architecture magazines.
- design development on an assigned topic;
The verification of the knowledge and the expected skills is carried out through the evaluation of the exercises proposed during the course and in the evaluation of the oral interview, of the learning of the contents object of the lectures.
The exercises and the oral part contribute to determining the final grade.
Assessment criteria: The evaluation criteria with which the knowledge and skills acquired will be verified are:
1. Completeness of the acquired knowledge;
2. Ability to prepare competently the elaborated subjects on the assigned topics;
3. Knowledge of the course contents provided in the lectures.
Course unit contents: The role of the Engineer in relation to architectural design. The building process and the main concepts related to the Building System: intended use of buildings, types of users, activities carried out, environmental context, phenomena, stresses, agent-action-effect relationship.
The articulation of the building system in the systems: technological, environmental and spatial functional.
Analysis of the significant parameters of the environmental and functional spatial system. From the functional-spatial level to the level of technological solutions: congruence of the two levels.
The technological system and its articulations: Bearing Structure, Closure, Internal Partition, External Partition Main services supply facilities (for outline).
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: The activities include classroom hours where information on the contents of the course is explained on computer support (powerpoint file).
In parallel with the frontal activity, the Laboratory for exercise activity is organized in two main exercises: the first consisting in the analysis and technological development of a design taken from an Italian or foreign trade magazine. The second exercise consists in develop of a design theme (ex novo) starting from the concept phase up to the execution phase. All the exercises proposed and carried out by the students are subjected to revision along the course period; these exercises allow the student to learn gradually the expected skills.
Additional notes about suggested reading: All the teaching material presented during the lectures is made available on the moodle platform.
