1st Year, sem 2, 2023-2024 | Compulsory Course | Hours/Week: 6P | ECTS Credits: 6
Course Leader:
lect.dr.arh.urb. Eugen Marinescu
Teaching Staff:
urb.dr. Adrian CIOANGHER, arh. dr. Vlad THIERY, arh. drd. Lorena BREAZA
Learning outcomes:
-correlation between external volume and internal partitioning solutions in order to meet specific needs for spaces with a high degree of privacy and spaces for common activities to a group of people,

-understanding how a building responds to constraints and opportunities related to: the context of a site, the specific needs of the sponsor and/or user, and the ability to propose appropriate solutions to them,

-understanding how the furnishing of rooms must respond to the principles of ergonomics - both through the furniture elements and through the ways in which they are placed in space, and the ability to propose appropriate solutions,

-correctness of the graphic representation, according to the conventions, to scale, for rooms and buildings - through plans, facades, sections, axonometrics, model,

-clarity through which graphic representations of type explanatory schemes with synthetic text present arguments for their own proposals.
-detailing a design brief - starting from a scenario based on personal experience (moodboard, functional scheme, defining the dimension needs for all categories of spaces),

-graphic representation, through explanatory schemes, of their own proposals arguments (starting from analysis criteria studied in the first semester on famous houses) regarding the functional logic, the structural composition, and respectively the aesthetic characteristics of a building.

-operating the relationship between structure and spatial form in the case of the structure-plan and the free plan (correlations with contents from the course Constructions 1: constructions with load-bearing masonry structure and reinforced concrete structures)

-furnishing of rooms as response to the principles of ergonomics - both through the furniture elements and through the ways in which they are placed in space,

-represent graphically, according to the conventions, their own solutions - through plans, facades, sections, axonometrics, model

-compose compositionally balanced plates with several elements - graphic representations and synthetic text, with and without computer help
Teaching Method:
some bibliographical references (lectures with video-projection),
-discussions with each student on the stage of each studio meeting,
-student presentations with teacher comments (crit)
-evolution (20%) - mandatory attendance at the workshop is required by regulation
-arithmetic average of the marks obtained at each stage (80%)
