Architecture and Materials

Description

Lectures and seminars will give an overview of the principal materials used in architecture, today and in the past, in particular by focusing on the relation between materials and design choices. An understanding of the production processes, methods of fabrication, properties and performances of different materials is essential to identifying and getting a clear focus on the criteria to be adopted during design, from a viewpoint that considers the complex relations between architecture, its setting and the environment.
