Construction Systems and Processes
The course is conceived as a preparation for the building project and as a conceptual reflection on the subject of construction. The different building systems, reduced to models, will be presented by retracing the radical changes they underwent last century. Construction techniques will be analysed. Parallel with the lectures the students will conduct a constructional analysis involving interpretation of a theme and relating construction, space and architecture to each other. On the basis of the plans, constructional details and other documents, students will present the analytical axonometrical redesign and the model of part of a twentieth-century building.
