With «Structural Design Lab» (first year), this course represents the disciplinary contribution of «Technology of Architecture» to the Master on Architectural Design @ the School of Architecture, University of Florence.
Both are focused on architectural project and computational parametric design embedding decisional process, communication and designing as well. Both courses deal with willness and facts: with "un-materiality" formalized, computed and extracted through digital technologies.

The course focuses on architectural buildings able to meet human needs while preserving environmental resources. The course teaches the Comprehensive Design concerning decision-making based on numerical speculations.
Main tool is digital modeling in order to materialize physics, alternative solutions and acquire shareable awareness on effects.
Exercises will focus on Massing Passive Optimization in the Early Stage; technological implementations; designing for construction and operation.
