Summary

The Atelier explores the possibility of designing the urban and territorial space as a renewable resource; it plunges the students into an intense confrontation among themes, scales, actors, theoretical and design positions. Important synergies are envisaged between research and didactic moments.

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

AR-471 - UE J Territory and landscape (Agriculture Métropolitaine), MER E. Cogato Lanza

Recommended courses

AR-700 - Spatial transformation as social movement, prof. J. Declerck

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Elaborate a reading of the territory with strong on field appropriation
  • Assess / Evaluate critically the contemporary urban condition
  • Develop scenarios
  • Develop inter-scalar strategies
  • Elaborate prototypes and territorial urban projects

Teaching methods

The work is organized through a series of "design operations":

- design as descriptive tool: fieldwork, deep reading of territorial figures through mapping and other representations

- design as conceptual tool: socio-spatial prototypes designed as "concrete descriptions of future situations"

Students will also actively participate in seminars with local experts, researchers, stakeholders.

The Design Studio will be conducted in parallel with the Design Studio Vigano BA5; in some occasions, it will be enriched by lectures from the Master of Advanced Studies EPFL-ETHZ "Urban and Territorial Design".

An intense relationship with the UE J: Territoire et paysage (Agriculture Métropolitaine) is envisaged; the participation to the UE J is thus expected.

Expected student activities

Projective construction of urban scenarios and prototypes through the use of videos, maps, architectural drawings and models. Understanding and interpretation of the proposed bibliography through short presentations.

Assessment methods

The materials produced by the student will be the basis of a presentation evaluated taking into account: 

- the student's contribution to teamwork and individual

- the quality of the different representations and of the project

- the capacity to place the work in a broader context

- the deepening of the proposed literature
