    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course will illustrate the methodological and technical problems present in a refurbishment project concerning the building envelope, with particular attention to materials and construction techniques.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The module aims to provide the basic knowledge needed to deal with an existing building rehabilitation project. Specifically, knowledge will be provided regarding the methodological approach for studying the existing building conditions and identifying design solutions; different rehabilitation techniques will be described in detail, and a focus will also be made on the main materials used. 

    The main expected learning outcomes are:

    • to know how to critically analyze an existing building and assess the need for rehabilitation work
    • to apply the acquired knowledge to a rehabilitation project of the existing building and to know how to choose different solutions and materials while qualitatively assessing their impact and achievable benefits

    TEACHING METHODS

    The course is conducted through lectures. 

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    The main topics discussed during the course are:

    • climate change and sustainable development with a special focus on the construction sector
    • sustainability-oriented design approach
    • methodologies for analyzing existing buildings and individuating design solutions
    • types of interventions for upgrading the building envelope
    • techniques and materials for the rehabilitation of existing buildings
