Recupero e Conservazione degli Edifici (EA)
Recovery and Conservation of buildings Enrico Quagliarini
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The course aims to provide students with the tools needed to design interventions for the recovery and preservation of Architectural Heritage in the light of the current instances of seismic upgrading and architectural restoration. The practical sessions involve exercises on the restoration of an existing complex having environmental and / or historical significance.
The purpose is to train a high-level professional engineer able to complete methodologies and operative tools towards designing interventions on Architectural Heritage for its conservation, up to their accurately fulfilment from an aesthetic, functional and technical-economic standpoint.
CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
Students will have to be able to express current design trends for recovery and restoration; identify the degradation processes; comparing traditional and innovative construction techniques; design the main techniques for recovery and consolidation, so as to so as to face with high-level (complex) design solutions and to carry out the research and development of new methodologies. They will also have to be able to responsibly design solutions based on their professional and engineering methodologies, beyond the usual rules and the current standards.TRANSVERSAL SKILLS:
Students, working alone and in team, will have to resolve one or more problems by providing some designing solutions. This will contribute to enhance their autonomy and their team-working, and to favour their communication skills so as to clearly and properly justify their designing choices. In this framework, students will be driven to autonomously look for their educational material, to get a synthesis, to test their skills on problems solving and to explain what they learnt.
Frontal lessons (78 hours):
How to intevene on Architectural Heritage: evolution of the scientific positions and today's debate. How a historical masonry building works, traditional constructive techniques, degradation processes. Local mechanisms and particular structures (arches, vaults,
). Assessing the vulnerability of historical buildings. How to design actions to recover and preserve Architectural Heritage and its constructive elements. Traditional and innovative interventions. Guidelines for monumental buildings. Historical surfaces conservation. Behavioural design and historical buildings (mention). Case studies.
Training exercises (12 ore):
Design actions on a case study with historical and/or environmental value: schemes of interventions on the whole case study; interventions on constructive elements and their connections; constructive details.
Development of the examination
LEARNING EVALUATION METHODS
students are evaluated through 2 levels:
- first level: evaluation of the annual training exercises;
- second level: oral exam on some of the topics of the course.
LEARNING EVALUATION CRITERIA
Students will have to be able to express, at both the two previous levels, current design trends for recovery and restoration; identify the degradation processes; comparing traditional and innovative construction techniques; design the main techniques for recovery and consolidation. This has to be done by doing justified choices.
LEARNING MEASUREMENT CRITERIA
Students' skill on problem-solving by providing technical detailed designing solutions and properly justifying their design choices will be evaluated at both the two previous levels.
FINAL MARK ALLOCATION CRITERIA
The maximum evaluation, that is 30 cum laude, is assigned to students who demonstrate, at both the previous two levels, an excellent skill on problem-solving by providing technical detailed designing solutions and properly justifying their design choices. The smallest evaluation, that is 18, is assigned to students who demonstrate, at both the previous two levels, a sufficient skill on problem-solving by providing technical detailed designing solutions and properly justifying their design choices.
