Construction Techniques of the 20th Century

  • Lecturer
    • Fraz Graf
 

The object of the course is to present a critical history of guiding ideas of 20th-century construction systems on the basis of a thorough knowledge of the built heritage, by investigating its technical and material aspects (materials and their installation), meanings and historical stratifications. The course deals with issues connected with the transformation of modern construction by processes of industrialization as compared to the continuity of traditional and regional knowledge and practices. It is organised as a series of lectures and a practical exercise involving analysis of the technological and constructional aspects of three works designed by the architect Gino Valle.
