THE EXISTING ARCHITECTURE: ANALYSIS AND EVALUATION OF POSSIBLE TRANSFORMATION
Learning outcomes of the course unit
At the end of the course students will have acquired the necessary tools for the analysis of historical architecture and the ability to produce advanced drawings through which to communicate their design ideas in the specific field of architectural restoration.
At the end of the course the student will have a comprehensive overview of the main project and will possess the theoretical assumptions of the representation of architecture.
At the end of the course the student will be able to design and implement the main processed for the presentation of an architectural project.
At the end of the course the student will be able to identify with the variations of the themes and issues, methods and techniques of representation most appropriate to use for the communication of their work.
Since the representation is configured as a de facto one of the main forms of language for communication architecture, passing the exam, the student must necessarily have acquired the ability to communicate their ideas and projects through the design.
Course contents summary
The course is aimed at students in the last year, already accustomed to using the representation as a primary tool for the description of the architecture. For this reason, in order to facilitate students in the preparation of graphics boards for a thesis in relief and restoration of historic architecture, the course is divided into a few lectures with the following topics:
- Analysis and Methods for the functional recovery of historical architecture.
- Real examples of interventions with change of functional recovery.

The course will consist of some lectures and a series of revisions individual and collective, for the verification of the design proposals of each student within the activities of the Laboratory of Synthesis
