The exercises are carried out in a guided manner at the beginning of the teaching, as a first application of the illustrated concepts and as an introduction to the laboratory activities.

The latter is mainly dealt with in the second semester and ends by the end of the course. On the last day of the lesson calendar, a collegial presentation of the laboratory works of the year will be held, carried out by each group.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

During the Lessons, the teaching primarily deal with basic contents as:
- problems and questions
- technical analysis and historical critical investigation
- themes of debate 

The Exercises introduce the student to the practical observation of territorial dynamics and the first bases of calculation of urban planning technique. They are carried out in class, individually, with collegial correction and commentary.

Within the Laboratory, after an initial part in which the analytical tools for setting the problem are provided, a unique design theme is addressed for the whole class, to be developed once divided into groups (problem based learning).

The SDGs covered by the teaching are mainly: 9, 11,12, 13, 14, 15.
