The Restoration course intend to deepen, on the basis of disciplinary knowledge acquired in the three-year course, some themes of the contemporary debate in constant relationship between theories and practice, so as to allow students to get critical competence in the field of protection and conservation of architectural heritage.
The Restoration course intend to deepen, on the basis of disciplinary knowledge acquired in the three-year course, some themes of the contemporary debate in constant relationship between theories and practice, so as to allow students to get critical competence in the field of protection and conservation of architectural heritage.
The Restoration course aims to deepen, starting from the knowledge already acquired in the three-year course, some issues related to the Restoration discipline. It will concern: 1. themes and methodology of the conservation project; 2. restoration laws and charters; 3. materials and their deterioration; 4. diagnostics; 5. intervention techniques for the restoration of artifacts; 6. relation between old/new architecture in reuse interventions; 7. problem of preservation and enhancement of cultural heritage, with particular reference to architectural and urban heritage and to landscape. Students attending the course will acquire the ability to examine and critically evaluate restoration interventions taking into account issues such as compatibility, minimal intervention, reversibility, distinctness, sustainability, that they will constantly have to face in the development of interventions on the existing heritage.

The student must have historical knowledge in order to be able to critically read both material and immaterial signs of the buildings. They should also have already acquired, during previous coueses, knowledge about the fundamentals of restoration theories and history, design and representation, technology and history of architecture.

They should also have already acquired, during previous coueses, knowledge about the fundamentals of restoration theories and history, design and representation, technology and history of architecture.
The Restoration course intends to examine thoroughly some topics concerning the Restoration discipline, starting from the knowledge acquired in the first three years courses onwards. The course will focus on the examination of aspects of both theoretical, and practical/application: restoration project methodology, materials and their degradation, diagnostic, restoration intervention techniques, relation between old and new in reuse interventions. In particular, the course aims to make students aware about problems concerning safeguard and enhancement of architectural heritage: from industrial heritage to "author’s architecture". During the course some visits will be conducted in architectural sites, having recently undergone restoration and/or adaptive reuse interventions, in order to let the students directly examine the interventions and critically evaluate them (6 visitsx3hrs/visit=18 hrs). The students will also be asked both to choose and to deeply analyse an adaptive reuse intervention, and to do a practical exercise focusing on conservation problems, trying to elaborate a conservation project of a contemporary architecture selected by the teacher at the beginning of the course.

The course organisation includes: 1. ex-cathedra lessons focusing on the examination of aspects of both theoretical, and practical/application (35%); 2. some visits which will be conducted in architectural sites in order to let the students examine directly some examples of restoration and/or adaptive reuse interventions and critically evaluate them (30%); 3. practical assignments (35%). During the course it is required an active participation both in lessons, during which a debate in relation to the issues addressed will be set up, and in the organised visits. The students will also have to do a practical exercise, assigned by the teacher, aimed both at the analysis of the state of conservation and at the development of an adaptive reuse proposal of an existing building.

Modalità di esame: prova orale obbligatoria; elaborato grafico prodotto in gruppo; progetto di gruppo;
The final exam aims to verify the acquisition of knowledge and of the teaching objective skills (described in the field of expected learning outcomes) through an oral examination and the presentation and discussion of the developed project. The exam will consist of an oral discussion of the topics related to the practical exercise developed during the semester (40%) and the examination of the knowledge of the topics explained during the ex-cathedra lessons (40%). The final vote will also take into account (20%) the evaluation given to the presentation of a case study made by the students during the last two lessons of the course. Exercise work will have to be printed in A3 format and delivered, together with the digital version, to the teacher during the exam. The examination will take place in groups or individually during which no. 3 questions will be addressed to each student.
