Graduates in Architecture for Sustainable Design from Polytechnic University of Turin also acquire a cultural education that allows them to approach, with awareness and competence, the aesthetic, distributive, functional, structural, constructional, managerial, economic, social and environmental issues, always relating them to sustainability.
Indeed new needs are now unfolding in the relationship between architecture and society regarding where and how we live. A key aspect of this change, in every field of design, is the emergence of issues related to project sustainability , in all its conceptions. Sustainability is, therefore, not only environmental, but also cultural, technological, economic, energetic, social and territorial.
The programme aims to provide all the cognitive tools necessary for an architect who will be in a position to manage entire design/planning processes with a focus on sustainability, interacting with other professionals involved and coordinating input.
It is divided into five multidisciplinary design ateliers, elective courses, internship activities and final thesis, focusing on integrating the various disciplines that make up the plan of studies. The multidisciplinary ateliers, through projects on appropriately defined issues, integrate different disciplines and expertise with a focus on project sustainability.
The MSc degree course in Sustainable Architecture responds to an increasing demand both at professional and research levels, nationally and Europe-wide, for professionals who can manage the complexity of the design/planning process in various fields and at different scales, with a focus on sustainability, in building and modification of the physical environment and landscape. Students acquire a cultural formation that enables them to address the aesthetic, distributive, functional, structural, technical-constructive, managerial, economic, social and environmental aspects of planning and design, with a constant view to sustainability.
The relationship between architecture and society today is characterised by evolving needs linked to the human population¿s changing lifestyles. A fundamental aspect of this evolution is the emergence, in every field of design, of a need for sustainability in all the dimensions that the concept evokes. Sustainability is therefore not only environmental, but must also encompass local culture, technology, economics, energy, and social and territorial cohesion.
