## AIMS AND CONTENT

### AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

```Geometric cycle: 3 primary figures

As stated in the inaugural treatise on the history of architecture, that of Vitruvius, the first of the notions that an architect must possess is geometry.

Square, circle and triangle, with their own implicit complexities and variants, up to the subversive deformations of their own rules, will constitute the research field on which the first year students will take their first steps.

In this way we intend to place a constraint that limits but at the same time opens the student's gaze through a specific lens. A common lens that selects infinite knowledge by means of a unique and objective parameter: the geometric one.

Following the general premises of the course, all the activities in which the student will take part will have the figure of the square in the center. Through this device, a series of lessons and related exercises will lead the student to deal with notions of history, theory and design, at different scales and in its fundamental aspects, according to a calendar structured in subsequent workshops.

The program of this academic year is therefore the end of a didactic cycle that was conducted over the next three years on the three primary figures, square-circle-triangle, the specific theme of each of the three courses.

All the work done on the traingolo, and previously on the circle and the square, will be brought together assuming as a whole the unitary form of a single didactic action. This action aspires to an idea of ​​totality, albeit limited to the realm of geometry.```
