Didactical planning of the
RILEVAMENTO dell’ARCHITETTURA"A” | A.A. 2019-2020
prof. arch. Caterina Palestini
1. PREMISE AND COURSE AIMS OF THE COURSE
The Architecture Survey course aims to provide students with architects the appropriate theoretical-applicative knowledge to analyze and represent, through the graphic language, what derives from the process of knowledge of the built in its environmental context. The purpose will be specifically pursued through a planned methodological course on the Surveying articulated in thematic modules that will offer a total of 8 credits in the field of Drawing (ICAR / 17). The student will then be guided through a training program that will allow him to know, with the support of the basic skills provided in the first year, the potential and possible applications of the drawing for the survey of architecture and the environment.
Finally, the third year concludes the basic training cycle of the Drawing by introducing in the eventual choice of the Multidisciplinary Degree in Drawing and multimedia representation, scheduled for the fifth year at the end of the Magistrale cycle of studies.
2. COURSE PROGRAM AND CONTENT
The scientific and discilatory contents of the course concern the analysis, the knowledge and the representation of the actual state. Through a series of theoretical lessons and practical exercises, the course will address the topics related to the different phases and procedures of detection, direct and instrumental. It is opportune to underline that, in parallel with the methodologies of acquisition of metric data, which constitute only one piece of the most complex process of knowledge to which the survey tends, the intrinsic values of the object will be considered. The survey operator, in fact, although supported by modern technologies, is called to perform a selective operation of discretization, analysis and synthesis of the built reality, complex and stratified over time. The aim is therefore to arrive at the planning of a conscious survey project that, based on the purposes required by the study themes, is able to select and integrate the most appropriate methodologies to analyze, through the survey, the architecture in the its environmental and landscape context, coming to a conclusion to the representation of the data obtained from the survey.
3. ORGANIZATION OF THE COURSE: EXERCISES - ELABORATION OF THE YEAR
The exercises, carried out partly on the outside and part of the classroom, will focus on the issues sunk in the course, relative to the main aspects of the survey and the subsequent graphic transfer.
The exercises will be evaluated from time to time and will constitute exam material; they should preferably be written on smooth cardboard sheets in A3 or 35x50 cm format.
Theme of the year, students divided into groups of 2 to 4 people, will have to develop a theme of study, agreed and elaborated under the guidance of the teacher, which summarizes the overall knowledge acquired in the course.
4. EXAMINATION METHODS
The final evaluation will result from the average of the different tests during the year (exercises, workshops and theme agreed) and an oral exam on the topics developed during the course.
Students who do not carry out a sufficient number of exercises will have to take a supplementary graphic test to be admitted to the oral exam.
