Learning outcomes:
Strengthen the progressive understanding of the city through the project, exploring the co-presence of several rules of urban planning. Training the capacity to build a public architectural program and to understand the urban articulations of a public building. Developing the sensitivity for the built heritage and the professional skills of intervention on and in the vicinity of some existing buildings with architectural value. Developing the capacity for formal creation and architectural composition, exploring hierarchical relationships between elements with weights and variable role within the ensemble. Understanding the sustainable dimension of the design and use of built spaces.
Theme 2 (III) / Places of the city II. Bucharest Architecture Center. The site is marked by the coexistence and simultaneous visibility of several principles and rules for ordering space and urban life. The project consolidates the understanding of the Bucharest urban palimpsest, integrating an existing building and emphasizing the exploration of the history, meanings and public culture of the city. The design of a public equipment involves the integrated development of design skills through which the student can negotiate complex issues related to the program, site, architectural form within a specific context. The architecture center will have a strong cultural and social character. It will function at the scale of the neighborhood scale and the historic center, but as a landmark for the whole city, as well. It will deal with heritage and history, but also with present and future issues. Its identity will follow your vision. You can, for example, emphasize its national relevance (in which case we recommend to limit yourselves to the modern and contemporary period) or its focus on Bucharest.
Teaching Method:
- Theoretical lectures (with illustrations) delivered by professors for all the year students or within the design shops; -Continual guidance through the study activity; - Correction of each student’s work or with the whole group; - Site visits, case analysis, worksheets, project sketches, scale models.
Project workbook, individual overview of the project, the design studio jury will give a grade.
