Knowledge of different buildings technologies and constructive elements, history of architecture.

Learning outcomes
The course enables students to acquire knowledge on the topic of masonry construction, with a focus on the existing building stock. Within this theme, the course, integrating the knowledge gained in the areas of architectural design, building technology, structural technology, will enrich the knowledge of the structural design, constructional and engineering issues associated with the renovation of masonry buildings, as well as the physical, technological and functional topics.
In order to integrate the control of operational methods and instruments geared to the renovation of buildings, the design exercises of the course deal with the topic of renovation of an existing masonry building. These will allow the student to develop his technical skills in order to design buildings that meet the functional, logical-formal, technical and technological reasons that govern the formation of the constituent characteristics of architectural design, also in the field of renovation of existing buildings.
The execution of design exercises on the topic of renovation of an existing masonry building will be the occasion for the student to know and understand the complexity of the design process at its various scales and processes that guide the project approach through a comparative choice between several possible solutions for the variables reason. In the field of existing buildings renovation, they are particularly expressed in the synergy between the conservation needs of the building or parts thereof, and that of his improvement from a structural, functional and performance point of view.

The course aims to provide the theoretical and practical tools necessary for the functional and architectural maintenance, rehabilitation and requalification of the existing and historical buildings. The lectures will be aimed in particular to deepen the following topics. - Analysis of the building: survey of damage and decay; - Masonry buildings: constituent materials, static behavior, consolidation techniques; - Concrete buildings: degradation of materials, survey of damage and decay, materials and techniques for consolidation, improvement and seismic retrofit; - Wooden structures: analysis of the state of degradation and consolidation of structural elements; - The energy retrofit: diagnosis of the energetic quality of the housing and methods of intervention. The design phase allows to apply what learned during the course on a real case study.

Development of the examination
The assessment of student learning consists of two levels: - an oral test with the aim of estimating the knowledge of the topics discussed during the course; - a series of short tutorials themes, in the form of drawings and/or technical reports, to be carried out in parallel with the lessons.

To successfully pass the learning evaluation, the student must demonstrate, through a discussion on the topics of the course and the exercises carried out, to have understood the contents covered, and be able to apply them independently in the process of renovation of a building.

At each level before indicated, a score between zero and thirty is assigned. The overall mark is the average of the marks obtained at the two levels.

So that the overall result of the evaluation is positive, the student must achieve at least the sufficiency, equal to eighteen points in each of the levels described above. The maximum score is reached when the student demonstrates a thorough understanding of all the course content. Praise is given to students who demonstrate particular skills during the oral presentation and in the exercises.
