The training path is aimed at the acquisition of the following skills:
The module is articulated in frontal lessons, eventually integrated with external seminars, visits and inspections also in collaboration with the School of Specialisation in Architectural Heritage and Landscape of the University of Genoa. The module in temporal continuity with the Laboratory of restoration and valorization of Cultural Heritage, can constitute occasion to deepen some thematic that will emerge from the laboratory exercises but it has an its didactic autonomy and it is turned to all the students interested to deepen technical and methodological thematic devoted to the architectural design on existing buildings. During the lessons are taken as an example paradigmatic case studies, on which students can simulate design approaches.
The lectures address the following fundamental topics:
1) The Heritage of the early twentieth century: materials, structural concepts, degradation and interventions (with particular reference to stone and ceramic coatings). Overview of problems and exemplary cases of "Conservation of the Modern".
2) The Heritage of the mid-twentieth century: the brutalism of Carlo Scarpa, the reconstruction plan INA-Casa: architectural values, construction methods, problems of degradation and functional deficit (with particular reference to the degradation of reinforced concrete and restoration techniques).
3) Door and window frames and curtain walls, iron window elements: degradation problems, performance deficit and rehabilitation interventions with high performance products.
4) Energy refurbishment of the architectural heritage: architectural compatibility criteria and intervention techniques.
5) Building industrialisation and problems of refurbishment of social housing settlements
The examination of the technical topics is framed within cultural contexts and horizons of broader reference, also taking as an example recent projects and achievements.

The evaluation of learning outcomes takes place with a final oral exam, during which students can help themselves with graphic schematisations that will help them to correctly expose technical arguments. Students can also be asked to answer specific questions that arise from the observation of documentary material provided by the teacher (photographs, drawings, videos).
The oral exam allows to verify the ability to analyse and understand the problems of different nature that affect the buildings of the twentieth century and to set in a correct and shared way, careful to the values still existing, projects of modification, enhancement and reuse, with particular attention to the technical solutions adopted.
They constitute parameters of evaluation of the examination:
