We must prepare for our uncertain world and expect the unexpected, which is the opposite of resigning oneself to generalized skepticism. (…) A thought that isolates and separates should be replaced by a thought that distinguishes and unites. A disjunctive and reductive thought should be replaced by a thought of the complex in the original sense of the term “complexus”: what is woven together. (…) A thought that connects and faces uncertainty. The thought that interconnects will replace unilateral and unidirectional causality with a circular and multi-referential causality, will mitigate the rigidity of classical logic with a dialogic capable of conceiving at the same time complementary and antagonistic notions, will complete the knowledge of the integration of the parts into a whole with the recognition of the integration of the whole within the parts.

Teaching: Architecture and architectural composition IV
Module (where present subdivision into modules): /

ECTS: 9
SSD: ICAR / 14
Hours of lessons: 60
Practice hours: 60

Educational objectives:
The fundamental objective of the course is to guarantee the conditions for a cultural preparation and operational capacity fully adequate to the complexity of the contents of the architectural project and is pursued through an articulated didactic offer which, with diversified approaches according to the various disciplines converging in the area, gradually leads to the mastery of the design process in every phase, from that of conception and general setting, to that of executive development and definition of detail. Compared to the previous compulsory Architecture and Architectural Composition courses, the specificity of this course lies in the themes and ways in which they are addressed both in the course of lectures and in exercises, aimed at the elaboration of a project, which can be developed as synthesis experience preparatory to the degree thesis. The theme is a project that integrates the complexity of the architectural object with the contextual one. These are problems generally related to the design of public facilities or linked to forms of continuity between architecture and landscape. The design process proceeds as a critical experimentation also with regard to structural and plant solutions.

Contents:
The course explores the problems and methods of architectural design, referring in particular to the correlations between the architectural work and the context it belongs to, in the broadest sense of the term, the constructive feasibility of the work and the role of technologies that contribute to the design summary. The exercises develop the architectural project on complex themes, both in relation to the functional program, and to the articulation of the different spaces making up the building and its extensions in the context in which it is located, and in relation to its production.

Teaching: Infrastructure architecture
Module (where present subdivision into modules): /

ECTS: 9
SSD: ICAR / 14
Hours of lessons: 60
Practice hours: 60

Educational objectives:
The aim of the course is to provide disciplinary elements, methods and techniques suitable for the complete mastery of design tools in relation to emerging themes in an era in which most engineering works consistently modify landscapes and cities with considerable indifference to the morphology of places and contexts. Complex engineering projects today represent central themes and of particular problematic relevance. The infrastructures and architectural artifacts connected to them, the systems related to the repair and maintenance of the environment are pre-eminent materials for the transformations of cities and the territory. The critical horizon underlying the course tends to initially embrace complex topics within a synthetic look to reduce them only later to their simple components. It is a point of view that finds reference examples in the nineteenth-century representations of the infrastructures of the territory that showed them as real landscape architectures and an interpretation of the project capable of producing quality in the architecture of the territory.

Contents:
The course analyzes the aesthetics of the territory and the built environment and the role of architectural design in the restoration of territorial and environmental degradation; the notion of “place” and the relationship between architecture and natural context, natural landscape and urban landscape are evaluated. The design experience will focus on issues related to this field of application.

Educational objectives:
The course is dedicated to the detailed design of the components that make up the buildings at different scales of complexity (basic, functional construction, factory elements). The approach methodologies are defined with reference to the technical characteristics of the individual elements that make up the parts of the buildings and to the problems of construction and functional compatibility of the technological packages. The purpose of the teaching is to prepare the student to measure himself in project synthesis processes concerning real cases, referring to the aspects of safety, the regulatory frameworks in force, desired levels of performance, stringent project timelines and building production.
The theoretical part and the practical part are deeply correlated and have points of convergence on the one hand in the reading of the built, with recognition of the constituent elements and techniques that underpin the construction phase, on the other in the executive design of parts of the building, with reference to possible construction site activities and the building industry market.

Contents:
Elements of performance theory;
Technical characterization of the envelope elements;
Technological packages: definition, implementation;
Project limits in relation to the needs of the client and the feasibility and durability of the building and architectural work;
Reading of the building and ex post determination of congruent technical solutions for the realization of the cases examined;
Real executive design of an architectural object complete from an architectural and functional point of view, related technological systems and costs.

THESIS

The degree thesis, from which the mastery of the topics, the ability to operate autonomously and a good level of communication must emerge, concerns issues related to architectural and / or urban planning and is didactically assisted by a 300-hour design laboratory. Upon completion of the studies, a master’s degree in Building Engineering-Architecture is obtained.
The presentation of the thesis work will take place publicly in front of a Commission of professors, supervisors and non-speakers, set up ad hoc by the Polytechnic School. The student will discuss the content of the final drawings, graphics and calculations, by means of tables and documents in paper format and will be able to support the dissertation with a short presentation in power point.
In the final evaluation, the Commission will acquire the non-binding opinions of the rapporteur, any co-rapporteur and the reviewer; the final judgment will take into account the intrinsic value of the thesis content and the methodological rigor of the same, of the topic dealt with in relation to the didactic-training objectives of the CdS and finally of the candidate’s career.

Given the particular course of study followed by the Building Engineers-Architects and the wealth of knowledge acquired in the field of building design and their conservation and restoration in relation to the environmental and urban context, they can be involved at all levels of project scale, starting from territorial planning, to those of the conception of the architectural idea, of the functional, structural and technological definition of the building work.
Graduates of the CdS in question can also take on decision-making and operational roles in the organization and management of the construction site (construction management, site management, safety coordination assistance, etc.) where, with competence, they know how to interact with institutions and territorial reference bodies and deal with the world of on-site production and that of the construction industry.

During the course of study, the graduate in Building Engineering-Architecture matures broad skills through participation:

a) characterizing didactic-training activities useful for solving recurring technical and architectural problems in the urban, compositional, technological and management of the building process (see Urban Planning Technique I, II; Architecture and Architectural Composition I, II, III ; Technical Architecture I, II; Construction Science; Construction Technique; Law and Anthropology; Economics and Civil Appraisal; Construction Site Organization);

b) training activities in disciplinary areas similar to or supplementary to the basic and characterizing ones of the CdS (Hydraulic Construction; Foundations);

c) to educational activities qualifying thematic in-depth study (chosen by the student) regarding: urban planning (Territory Government Tools) the building / environmental context relationship (Building Acoustics and Architecture, Lighting, Air Conditioning Systems); technological problems (Technical Architecture III, Building Recovery Project, Building Recovery Techniques) and structural problems (Diagnosis and therapy of structural instability; Reinforced Concrete Buildings, Tall Buildings and Large Roofs; Wooden Buildings; Masonry Buildings and their Historical Development ); compositional aspects (Architecture and Architectural Composition IV; Architecture of Infrastructures);

d) additional supplementary teaching activities chosen by the student for the development of knowledge useful for thesis work and postgraduate professional integration;

f) professional training in technical firms, private and public bodies and offices operating in the sector, productive realities of specific interest in the world of architecture and building construction.

The Building Engineer-Architect, a figure of European significance, can find a natural professional outlet, in single or associated form, in all fields of interest in urban planning and territorial planning and design, the latter understood on the one hand as moment of conceptual and material definition of new architectural organisms and building artifacts, simple and with high functional and technological complexity, on the other hand as an operational tool for building recovery, conservation and restoration of organisms subject to protection. Within the construction site he will be able to take on organizational, control and management roles, in the construction industry he will be able to assume roles in the design of construction elements and as a production technician. Finally, there are many outlets in the field of technical consultancy for aspects of law, civil appraisal, environmental sustainability, safety in the workplace, fire prevention.
