Learning outcomes
The course contributes to understand the complexity of the design process with regard to the scale of the detail, exploring the theme of the comparative choice among different building solutions from both a functional and technical approach and a formal one, that is coherent with the whole planning thought. To that aim the meaning of the “architectural detail” is described as the synthesis of both the technical and linguistic reflection as regards to a specific problem; projects are presented to understand how to consider the variety of aspects that are involved in the design approach; different methods are presented to help the reading of a reference project from the point of view of the building detail. This basic knowledge will guide the design choices among several possible solutions.
The course enables the students to develop a critical attitude that makes it possible to analyse the technical and aesthetic components of the design process at the detail scale and to apply the knowledge of the Architectural Engineering 1 course to a specific case. Using this knowledge, the student will be able to develop autonomous design solutions, that are both correct with regard to the construction and the performance and conscious of the formal implications in the whole architectural design. The student will also be able to justify his choices as the solution of the specific problem. These abilities will be developed carrying out the executive project of a residential building that is pre-defined during a previous exercise of the Architectural engineering 1 course and then modified in the laboratory.
The laboratory has the aim to improve the students’ ability to analyze and synthesize the several technical and aesthetic aspects of the architectural design at the constructive detail scale. The development of the executive project, carried out in groups, facilitates the exchange of ideas between the students and the discussion on the possible design options and it leads the students to improve their abilities in cooperation and communication of their own choices. The acquisition of independent judgment skills will be evaluated through the revision discussion with the teacher.

The workshop explores the planning process of a family residence . The planning workshop particularly develops the theme of the architectural detail, with reference to the external and internal space and the envelope

Development of the examination
Students activity will be tested in the examination of the teaching which is entrusted with the management of the laboratory.
