Professor SALVATORE DI FAZIO
Objectives In the Teaching Unit 1 “Forestry Buildings and Landscape” (6 ECTS, 60 hrs) the course offers basic elements for the planning and design of forestry buildings in relation to the landscape. Attention is focused on the buildings serving agricultural/forestry production and supporting those other complementary farm-based activities which today characterise the forestry landscape, this last to be seen as a multifunctional space. The building themes, moreover, are dealt by considering the particular nature of hill and mountain areas, often recognised as areas of high natural and landscape value. Methodological aspects of building design are presented by considering the building as a living organism and studying its subsystems in relation with their specific environment and socio-economic context, in view of sustainability objectives. Basic elements for the investigation of the
building-landscape relationship are studied by making reference to the analysis of the current building stock , the valorisation of the historic/traditional built heritage, the design of new buildings, the examination of specific case-studies and applications.
Programme Introduction to forestry building design. Building organism and its composing parts.Building subsystems and the analysis of their renovation cycles. Interaction and complementarity
between functional, structural/constructional and formal/compositional aspects. Relationship between buildings and their “landscape/environmental” and “social/cultural” contexts.

The idea of “space” in architecture. Functional space and the analysis of building requirements and performance in architectural meta-design. How to express functional
activities’ environmental needs and the corresponding building requirements. Dimensional variables in rural building design. Microclimate and the wellbeing of building users. Characterisation of microclimatic conditions and requirements. Building solutions and systems for the control of indoor microclimate.The “perceived space” and sensory/perceptual factors in building design.

Design and functional organisation of buildings in relation to social aspects and users’ behaviour. Hygiene and health aspects in the design of buildings for agriculture and food production.

Application and practical aspects: Functional analysis of rural buildings according to different categories of uses(forestry buildings, animal houses, food production facilities,
etc.)

Relationship between the activity spaces and the circulation system.

The structural andtechnical/constructional system.

The formal and compositional system.

Sustainability in forestry and rural building.

Fundamentals of building technology. The structural problem in forestry building. Building structure’s function and meaning. Main building loads and their characterisation.
Relationships between building’s load-bearing structure, enclosure system, constructional systems and building materials and components.

Timber in forestry buildings. Technical innovation and perspectives. Structural systems and building components in timber. Connections and assembly systems. Defects in timber.
Prefabrication in timber for forestry buildings.

Stone and brick walling systems: constructional systems and good practice. Masonry types. Mortars.

Reinforced concrete (ordinary andprestressed): main uses in rural andforestry buildings. Load bearing structures in reinforced concrete: components,performance, construction procedures. Prefabricated rural and forestry buildings in reinforced concrete.

Steel in architecture. Chemical/physical characteristics of steel and mechanical performance under stress. Utilization of steel in the main types of rural and forestry
building structures. Steel beam shapes and connection methods an d systems. Roofing large single-span buildings: the choice of suitable structural systems.

Land, environment, landscape: meaning and appropriate use of technical terms. The idea of landscape as enlightened by the European Landscape Convention. The forestry and
agricultural landscape: characteristic features.

Traditional buildings as a distinctive element of the landscape in mountain and forestry areas. Recognising the distinctive typology and compositional characters of traditional buildings indifferent regional landscapes.

Form, language and communication in architecture. The architectural composition. The compositional dimension in relation to the functional and constructional ones. Building-landscape relationship in new rural buildings.

Homework and practical exercise: Thematic reports and technical papers to be produced individually or in a small team concerning the analysis and interpretation of regional
landscapes and the built rural heritage; survey and representation of rural and forestry buildings.
