AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim of the course is to analyse and reflect theoretically on the project in order to develop critical and self-critical capacity and to contribute to the student's personal development and to the general development of the discipline.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The "Architectural Theory" course is a two-credit module within the "Architecture Studio 1" at the first year of the Master's degree in Architectural Composition. This course delves into the theoretical aspects of architecture, focusing on its ontological dimensions.

The primary objective of this course is to provide students with a deep understanding of the theoretical foundations of architecture. It aims to explore the essence and significance of architectural composition in the broader context of architectural studies.

Students will engage with core theoretical questions such as the nature of architecture, the principles of architectural composition, and the role of some specific issues, such as language, proportion, symmetry, and the likes, in design. The course seeks to enhance students' ability to critically analyze and integrate theoretical concepts within their architectural projects.

TEACHING METHODS

The course methodology includes theoretical lectures and interactive project review sessions. While the lectures will cover fundamental questions and concepts in architectural theory, the review sessions will allow for the application of these theories in the students' ongoing studio projects.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The course combines ex-cathedra lectures focusing on theoretical issues, particularly those of an ontological nature, with periodic reviews of the project developed in the studio. These sessions aim to provide in-depth insights into the theoretical aspects of the students' projects.

RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY

Specific reading materials and bibliographic references will be provided during the course to support the theoretical lectures and project reviews.

EXAM DESCRIPTION

There is no separate final exam for this module. The final assessment will be based on the project developed in the studio over the semester. The discussion and integration of theoretical aspects in the project will contribute to the final grade.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The assessment will focus on the quality and depth of theoretical understanding demonstrated in the studio project. Students' ability to effectively integrate and articulate architectural theories within their project will be a key component of their evaluation.
