In the first semester, the atelier deals with the subject of the individual dwelling, offering the student the opportunity to confront with a personalised program, with the specificity of landscape, as well as with the materialisation and construction detail. Didactically, the project thus becomes a personal path of research, in the sense that this term has in architecture, that is, to interrogate a place, to question the validity of commonly accepted principles of practice, to investigate one's own ideas and theoretical positions, and to find the necessary operational tools suited to the specific project situation.


The second-year atelier offers the opportunity to consolidate the knowledge acquired in the first year, familiarise students with the fundamental issues of architecture and finally introduce them to the methods of professional practice.
The course is structured around a project theme, from which each student builds a personalised design path following his or her own interests and intuitions. Particular care is taken in the study of the relationship with the place, understood as a synthesis between the natural landscape and the cultural context in which one works; the precision in the dimensioning and materialisation of the individual parts that make up the body of the architecture are constantly cultivated, within a design proposal that is taken care of from its insertion in the territory down to the scale of the construction detail.
