Presentation

Through a new design method called Eco Generative Architecture, based on the observation of nature under microscope, CE&A master trains architects and engineers in extracting from nature geometries, patterns, modular principles, ideas for structures and materials. Our master students will learn how their final project can be translated into a ‘file to factory’ for its real construction. Architects and engineers of this master have to take into consideration the energetic management, the maintenance and the final recycling of their designs. For this reason, our master students will attend a specific didactic strategy that faces each challenge that the world of construction is going to deal with in the future. Our aim is to prepare new professional figures to face the environmental problems.

Objectives and learning outcomes

CE&A master is addressed to engineers and architects interested in environmental design, that work or want to work in Professional Firms, Private Companies, Public Administrations, International Institutions, ONG, Energy Service Companies, and Utilities Companies. CE&A master trains new professional figures to work in teams. The students will learn how to guarantee, manage and organize architectures or engineering structures and infrastructures related to nature. They will work with softwares and technologies of last generation. Thanks to the aforementioned skills, our master students will be able to successfully afford the most recent warnings of the European environmental directives.

Course organization

The lessons of CE&A master will be on Friday and Saturday (16 hours per week). At the end of the training activity our master students will face an internship at the partner Companies and Organizations. During this internship the students will be helped and supervised by a teacher of the master.

The program is fully taught in English. CE&A main modules delivered by both Italian and international professors.

CE&A master is divided into 3 thematic areas – Trans Naturality, Digital Manufactured, Research and Communication – which include n. 16 courses divided into modules. These thematic areas concern the design, management, maintenance, promotion and recycling of an architectural and/or an engineering artefact.

The training courses of CA&E cover different topics, all however linked to design, realization and promotion of a project that respects nature and the Circular Economy process.

These topics are mainly:

Acquisition of an eco-generative design method. It is an innovative, critical, compositional, conceptual approach, that can involve the entire construction industry, from the starting idea to its final recycling.

Autonomy in Green designing. This autonomy provides technological skills for the analysis, evaluation and synthesis of the environmental sustainability.

Autonomy in the legislation that regulates the Circular Economy process

Autonomy in technological tools for designing and for creating a file to factory.

Acquisition of communication skills to promote and advance the project at any level, referring to the construction industry as well as to the Circular Economy world.

Ability to promote not only in professional, but also in research contexts, the virtuous process of circular economy applied to the construction industry.
