78292 - Workshop of Architectural Technology I

Course Unit Page

Academic Year 2018/2019

Learning outcomes

The course gives the basic knowledge instruments on materials and construction processes in their relationship with the architectural project. The theory is completed by applications in the lab.

Course contents

The program envisages two integrated  modules of theory.

Module 1 (Guardigli)

Building systems: reinforced concrete construction, masonry construction, timber construction, steel construction.

Module 2 (Gulli)

Principles, criteria and rules: architecture / construction; place / site; type / model. Building characters: building typologies, building methods, construction materials. Form and structure: structural frame, trilith, arch, dome, beam, truss, building base. Type and function: efficiency / effectiveness; internal space / external space.
