Class Architecture Project II

  • Presentation


    Initiation to the Licencing Project. Housing typologies and the urban context.

  • Code


  • Syllabus


    The theoretical component of the discipline focuses on the study of housing typologies as a support for a cultural memory contributing to the morphology of the city and the peripheries, focusing on the intrinsic relationship between street and habitat, as an integrated process of architectural and urban design.
    Introduction to elementary types of housing in an urban context: the horizontal house; the courtyard house; the cubic house; the vertical house; the block building; the stem, etc.
    The practical component is based on the design and physical model, the analysis of the elements and the compositional and constructive systems as determinants of the formation and characterization of the housing space.
    Two or three exercises are performed according to pre-established themes.

  • Objectives


    The exercise of architecture rehearsed in the context of urban habitat.
    Experimentation of different design methodologies based on the interrelationships between structure / model / technical drawing. The formation of architectural concepts; conceptual paradigms (mass, structure and skin); analysis / synthesis sequences in the design stages. Introduction to experimental composition processes.
    Introduction to the study of different habitat typologies in the urban context. Utilitarian, psychological and symbolic functions of spaces.
    Introduction to the study of the city through the street context as a place of experiences and memories. The rhetoric of the city in the construction of architectural rhetoric and vice versa.
    Analysis of elements in balance, constructive and compositional systems, as determinants of the formation and characterization of the built space.

  • Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    The teaching methodology of PA II seeks to awaken in the student research methodologies for the elaboration of the Project Licensing, structured around three fundamental elements: the Program, the Site and the Materials. The study of these elements is done through three basic supports of representation: the set Bizarre / Geometry / Hand Drawing; the model of study; the Technical Drawing. Questioning through these supports allows the student, individually accompanied by the teacher, to grade their objectives for the Previous Study, the Project Licencing according to the criteria of age analysis (paths study; tracing; scale, light, materials, constructive system, etc.) The course of Project II introduces in practice some general questions Theory of Space and Urban Design in a progressive way, theoretical classes, and oral. presentations. Continuous assessment is combined with phasing and final presentations to calculate the final grade.
