Class Constructive Systems I

  • Presentation


    Teach the basic elements of architecture, so that at the end of the semester students are able to use and choose, in general terms, the use of materials in Architecture, formal composition, materiality, know the proportions, scales and dimensions and measures of conceptual expression and also to know how to represent its use properly and graphically through simple work to survey constructive elements

  • Code


  • Syllabus


    - Concept of formal materiality in architecture. Concept of structure, envelope or envelope, space, cubicage, exterior and interior spans. Minimum and mandatory sizing. Regulations to be observed.

    - Essential components of a building, including foundations and supporting elements. Concept of building materials. Survey of constructive elements. Primary detail.

    - History of construction through the evolution of construction processes and traditional technologies. Military and Church architecture in the development of techniques, architecture and the arts.

    - Sensitivity to materials relating the technical aspects to the perceptual, sensitive and expression aspects.

    - Notions of technical drawing: forms of representation; the usual scales; sheet formats, and folding.

    - Covers and various appropriate materials. Notion of spans and load and overload. Trusses and the parts that compose them. Efforts that support.

  • Objectives


    - Knowledge of the historical evolution of the construction and the materials used indoors and outdoors, in connection with the architecture in general.

    - Dimensioning, detailing and spatial planimetric and altimetric interdependence acording to the buiding materials options. Surveys. Spatial and technical relationship with planimetry and altimetry.

    - The architectural options and its quality, and the most suitable types of structures, cover and envelope, according to the principles of sustainability, to be used through practical exercises, where the student demonstrates sensitivity, proportions, scales and conceptual expression.


  • Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Teaching will be supported in part by the expository method supported by Power Point, and in another part by students' research. Trial and error method in the execution of exercises - architectural representation through simple surveys of construction elements made in class and eventually at home, to induce the perception of Architecture, either through manual representation or through assisted design or through the notion scale and quality, shape and dimension of the materials used. Visits to shipyards and workshops.

    Assessment Element Weighting in the final grade

    Work performed in the classroom 50%

    Oral and / or written presentation of the course themes - 50%

    arithmetic average of the works presented

     for the continuous assessment regime, is mandatory for at least 75% of classes attendance
