The course belongs to the traditional disciplinary corpus of studies of Architecture and its name expresses the subject content of Architectural Technology, whose purpose is to study the processes of realization in architecture. The course includes a program that is characterized by a methodology that, tending to produce a preliminary design, final design and a partial experiences of executive planning, ports especially to think about the project.
More general objective is to contribute to the formation of a new culture of construction, which is able to mend the conceptual separation between time and moment of realization.
The course aims to be an application of technological design, built on the rejection of an independent and separate conception of the project; useful to the understanding of "building processes" and how the technological know-how to intervene in the design process. The aim of the course is to gain knowledge of the social role of the designer and the relationships that are established in architectural construction, between form and content, including social and environmental purposes, including use of materials and their performance, the spaces between logic, logic functions and structural reasons.
The aim of the course is to make the student acquire the knowledge of the relationships that in the construction of architecture are established between form and content, between the social aims of environmental transformation and the means offered by production, between the use of materials and their performances, between the logic of spaces, the logic of functions and the structural reasons; in order to mature the ability to conceive, design and graphically return the fundamental building elements and their assemblages, verifying the economic aspects and the regulatory congruence, checking the role that materials and techniques play in the architectural project, in the realization and, more in general , in the process of planning-production-use design of an artifact.
Programme The teaching activity is articulated through teaching "ex cathedra" on the basic issues and theoretical knowledge and techniques (first phase), and through the mentoring activities for the development of the project (second phase), whose conception must be simultaneously expressed materially and technologically and then to the appropriate depth scale.
In the design process, students are required to pursue some guiding principles with respect to requirements such as:
- Security
- Wellness
- Protection of the environment (use of materials and environmentally friendly products; optimization of the building context, alternative sources of energy
- Flexibility typological and technological (adaptability, flexibility, integration, accessibility, usability)
- Implementation (speed of construction and assembly, level of prefabrication, adaptability to soil type)
- Management (maintainability and replaceability)
- Reversibility of the process (temporary - transience, recyclability, reusability).

The frequency of the courses will be verified through partial evidence and relate to three levels of activity: analytical-cognitive, elaborative and verification / validation.

Level cognitive-analytic
- the resources (materials, products, traditional and innovative building systems)
- processes and procedures (phases, subjects, organizational models)
- the theme (needs, wants, feasibility, legislation, regulations, cultural references)
- the context (external data morphological and climatic, geological, historical, urbanistic, architectural)

Level elaborative
Interrelations needs / resources / environment and evaluation of design degrees of freedom (the activity tends to produce two different design levels: preliminary - definition of environmental subsystem - and partial experiences of the final / executive - definition of the subsystem technology ) .

Level of verification / validation
On the partial processing, and in progress, the course will develop actions of verification / validation based on:
- Relationship building / environment (appropriateness of the choices, minimizing impacts, exploitation of natural resources, etc.).
- Report program / project (translation of the program in terms of construction, dimensional aspects, distribution, performance);
- Report project / construction (relapses constructive options architectural image, classifications, processes, innovations, materials and techniques, drawings)
- Relationship building costs (basic information, calculations, specifications, etc.).

To support these activities will be provided prior teaching materials, with bibliographies, bibliographic-type cards, knowledge of technological systems, material anthology, etc.
