12053 - Landscape Architecture (B)

Course Unit Page

Academic Year 2018/2019

Course contents

The Laboratory of Architectural Design IV A (C.I. 12 CFU) is mainly constituted of the characterizing teaching of Architecture and Architectural Composition II (8 CFU) and a Landscape Architecture Teaching (4 CFU).

Landscape Architecture (4 CFU) (A) and (B) constitute the doubling of a single teaching of Landscape Architecture of 24 hours of frontal teaching activity for each module. During the two days of laboratory, 2 hours will be dedicated to the teaching of "Landscape Architecture" and the remaining hours to "Architectural Composition".  The final exam of the two teachings (Landscape Architecture - 4 CFU and Architectural Composition - 8 CFU) will be jointly supported and the evaluation will take into account the results achieved in both modules.

 

The "Landscape Architecture" module deals with the landscape dimension understood as a complex "system" of geographical, environmental and cultural elements inside of which the project is developed. 

Reading, recognition and analysis of these aspects are fundamental design tools and contribute substantially to defining the identity of an architecture, linking it to a specific context. The landscape, as a witness to the dynamics through which the territory and the contemporary city transformed, revealing characters of permanence and change, suggests procedural strategies and represents an inescapable design reference.

The aim of the course is to learn how to critically analyze the elements of the landscape and to understand how they intervene and they compare themselves with the architectural project.

Teaching methods

The lab activity will combine lectures and analytical-critical reading exercises on study cases.

Assessment methods

The Laboratory of Architectural Design IV A (C.I. 12 CFU) is mainly constituted of the characterizing teaching of Architecture and Architectural Composition II (8 CFU) and a Landscape Architecture Teaching (4 CFU).

For the achievement of the suitability for the course will be required the elaboration of some graphic works in order to evaluate the analytical-critical reading capacity of the elements of the landscape. Further specifications will be provided during the course.

The final exam will combine the evaluation of the work developed and an oral discussion on the contents of the activities carried out during the course.

The assessment of learning will follow the same procedures for both courses (A) e (B).

Teaching tools

The teaching materials related to lectures and laboratory exercises will be available to the student in digital format on IOL platform (https://iol.unibo.it) or sent by e-mail.
