- Realization of the connection to the proximal space and framing in the studied context
- Raising awareness of the students towards a rational perception of the existing urban system
- Practising the formative values of the INTEGRATED design system, between architecture, urban planning and technical sciences
- Developing the ability of identifying and mastering the complexity of the parameters that influence the design process
- The deepening of the sustainable development concept regarding the environmental and ecology issues
- The investigation of the possibilities to operate in sites with personality, in ancient sites, affected by interventions in time, or in deconstructed sites
- The study of the impact created by the appearance of a new function in an existing urban context.
