The curriculum of the second semester carries out an extended project organized in two phases, with guidance, and three short ones - one-day sketch, no guidelines.
The long project requires the elaboration and drafting of a single-family, multifunctional and energy-independent housing project - after the Solar Decathlon model, structured in two stages: the elaboration of the architectural project and the elaboration of the interior architecture project.

Teaching Method:

The theme is presented throughout the year through theoretical lectures and multimedia presentations. Colloquia are organized outside the university and meetings with specialists in related fields, for information on specific programs, technological flows needed to be taken into account in the project economy but also on teamwork issues related to the specifics of the future profession.
In the workshop, each student continuously benefits from individual and panel correction in the successive stages of the project.
Of particular importance there are considered to be the individual research, site visits, market research of profile products, sketches, examples, preparation and deepening the bibliography.
