Master’s Degree – Architectural Design

IM_LProgettazioneThe Master’s Degree in Architectural Design sets the building system at the centre of the design experience. Its main educational goal is to train students in the management of the whole design process which leads to the creation of a quality architecture: from the concept to its complete execution and to the interaction between the building and the environment, focusing on its living conditions and on coherence between structural, typological, distributive and technological choices.

The entire educational program, which is based on a high-level critical and historical culture about the different aspects of the design arts and the architectural language, is thought to guarantee an advanced professional knowledge, conceived for managing all the architectural choices and for their evaluation in terms of technical and economical feasibility. The educational subjects concern the entire field of typological applications and favour mostly the design of new buildings and the integration of contemporary architecture in existing urban fabrics.

The Master’s Degrees of the Department provide an educational pathway structured in thematic terms, organized in practical workshops distinctly interdisciplinary. Particularly, the first year of the Master’s Degree in Architectural Design, is based on a design experience about the conception of a new building, realized through two different workshops, which start with a preliminary design and end with a final one.

In the first term of the second year students ought to participate in a third workshop about a larger-scale project, which includes urban and infrastructural themes. The second semester is based on the fulfilment of a thesis also by participating to Thesis Workshops.
