BSc 2

The second-year studio offers the opportunity to consolidate the knowledge acquired in the first year, gain experience of fundamental issues in architecture and finally enable the student to explore the methods of professional practice. Each studio session will work on a housing project, one of the commonest and most representative topics in professional practice. During the first semester the detached house will provide an opportunity to deal with a personalized program, with the specifics of landscape and topography, as well as the materialization of architecture and the constructional detail. The following semester will be devoted to the study and analysis of the exclusive and specific issues bound up with collective housing.
