Subject fundamentals
The course is hold in the form of a multidisciplinary Studio (Atelier) and therefore it integrates several disciplines. It aims at making students aware of planning and implementation problems and conditions related with programmes dealing with local development and urban and environmental regeneration. These programmes include and integrate physical, economic, social and cultural actions, with a special attention to sus¬tain¬able urban development goals, and participation processes needs. The Studio ends with a unique exam.
Expected learning outcomes
- Knowledge of urban regeneration and local development policies and of the integrated programming tools;
- Ability to define goals, contents and components of an integrated programme or to critically analyse goals, contents and components of an existing programme, ability to analyse its impacts on the urban contest and its relations with the existing plans;
- Ability to develop autonomously parts of the programme, ability to design parts of the physical transformations foreseen by the programme and ability to verify their feasibility;
- Ability to communicate and discuss the defined proposals with different communication techniques (written, oral, graphic), to communicate also with non–expert actors, and to use participation techniques.
Prerequisites / Assumed knowledge
Established knowledge in the field of planning tools and the techniques of urban design, ability to develop spatial analysis using statistical and GIS tools, testified by having passed the exams of Urban Design Studio and the course Spatial analysis using GIS.
The Atelier is focused on urban regeneration in the suburbs of a big city.
The activities is developed by groups of students (no more than 3-4).
The groups are therefore requested to:
- Develop a part of the territorial analysis;
- Outline and discuss possible actions of the program;
- through some design tasks try to evaluate the implementation.
Particular attention is paid to the evaluation of the program objectives and the relationship with the urban planning for local and sustainable development.
The disciplinary contributions:
- Policies and tools for urban regeneration (ICAR 21, 6 credits); the contribution to the coordination of activities of the Atelier, provides, through lessons, knowledge on the policies and instruments for urban regeneration;
- Policies and tools for local development (MGGR 02, 4 credits): the contribution introduces, through some lessons, the mechanisms concerning strategies and policies for local development and carries out an analysis of land resources (recognized and to be recognized) and relationships local / global;
- Architectural components for urban regeneration (ICAR 14, 4 credits): objectives and procedures for the local project in a program of urban regeneration and local development.
Delivery modes
All the activities give rise to a specific product and some of these products, considered milestones, are discussed with all members during the lessons (teachers and students) in specific stages.
The ability to present clearly and effectively and to discuss products developed is considered an important element of the training.
Texts, readings, handouts and other learning resources
Bibliography, summary of the topics covered, copy of the slides in powerpoint used during lessons and documents useful to the organization of group activities are available on the portal of teaching.
Assessment and grading criteria
Given the complexity of the activities proposed by the Atelier it is necessary to make the most of the working time in the classroom. The frequency Atelier is therefore a condition for being able to develop the planned activities and the exam. The products of the activities will be subject to ongoing evaluation formalized by teachers, evaluations that will contribute to the final exam. The exam will consist in a presentation and a discussion of a written paper and graphic elaborations (final dossier). The activities are carried out in a group, the judgment for each student will be, however, an individual judgment, taking account of ongoing evaluations.
