Knowledge and ability to understand
The student through the correct application of the conceptual tool of the survey, understood as an open system of knowledge, must be able to get to know and interpret architecture in its formal, material and technological-constructive components. The survey is in fact the main tool for knowledge and analysis of architecture, identifying its transformative vocations and, in its various geometric and thematic components, it is an indispensable element for the elaboration of the restoration and conservation projects of the existing architectural heritage, and starting point for all architectural projects of recovery and functional reuse.
The course aims to consolidate in the student the knowledge of the integrated detection methods aimed at overcoming the problems related to the geometric and thematic architectural survey, such as to enable him to plan the survey, execute it and represent it graphically in a correct way, finalizing the operations to acquisition and elaboration of the critical, historical, technical and operational aspects, to which the survey itself can be destined.
The student must learn to know and interpret, through the survey, the object of study in order to conscientiously elaborate a responsible architectural intervention in accordance with the different categories of intervention aimed at a suitable functional reuse compatible with the characteristics of the architecture investigated.
The student must be able to translate the complexity of the existing architecture, in its geometric-dimensional and thematic aspects (material, diagnostic, etc.) into appropriate graphic models.
