Descripción

Are you interested in further studies in the field of sustainable design? If so, this Master’s programme may be of interest to you.


The Master course in Smart Buildings and Sustainable Design addresses the issue of sustainability in terms of design strategies that optimize environmental, energy and social behaviors of the urban environment. The course is aimed at embedding interactive and web connected technology with architecture, in order to become aware of what is going on in the surrounding environment and acquire the capability of virtuous reactions. Sustainable design deals with the challenges and problems of post-industrial polluted cities by combining design and technical skills to outstanding theoretic, critical and cultural knowledge.

Professional opportunities - Graduates can progress or start a career in national and international architecture and engineering studios as Designers or Specialists in sustainable strategies and innovative technologies. The highly technological profile of the Master course, including the use of 3D printers and emerging building technologies, opens the doors to public or private research centers, experimental labs and institutions related to product design and technology innovation.

¿Esta formación es para mí?

Target - The Master in Smart Buildings and Sustainable Design is designed for graduates in architecture, civil engineering, architectural and built environment studies or design studies in related fields who wish to explore the built environment to turn economic and environmental constraints into creative design opportunities, as well as suggest techno-functional strategies considering social and energy issues.Methodology and structure - The course includes different teaching activities: theoric classes, seminars, design workshops, speeches, construction labs.The first month will be dedicated at introducing students to the skills of the job, including 3d modeling, digital fabrication, Arduino technology and principles of environmental strategies. From the second month and through the next 11 months, students will work on a challenging thesis project that will be presented to a public audience at the end of the Master. During this phase, classes will stimulate students on the topics of Green Energies Design Strategies, Smart Technologies for the Built Environment, Design Rating Systems and Certifications, Big Data, Urban Sharing. All the input coming from these activities will be embedded in the students design work to develop a compelling thesis project.

Programa académico

Course Programme:

    • 3D Modeling
    • Parametric Design
    • Digital Fabrication
    • Physical Computing
    • Smart Design Studio I
    • Smart Design Studio II – Reducing Energy
    • Energetic Solutions
    • Sustainable Engineering
    • Smart Building Thesis
    • 3D Modeling

      Intensive tutorial classes to learn 3D modeling skills with specific focus on Rhinoceros. These skills are the foundation to a parametric design approach able to embrace the contemporary complexity. During an intensive first week students learn the essential tools of Rhino, which are implemented later in the Smart Design Studio I module. 

    • Parametric Design

      Software tutorials on algorithmic design and modeling, specifically using Grasshopper. The course makes students able to model parametric geometries, such as NURBS and Mesh, starting from setting and manipulating information in order to define the entire design process. They progressively build parametric data structures from simple lists to complex data trees, inform their data-driven geometry/envelopes, create populations of responsive models and use relevant information from such models for construction processes. 

    • Digital Fabrication

      Introduction to the fast prototyping processes using numeric control machines and actual fabrication of prototypes using laser cuts, CNC-mills, robotic arms and 3D printers. This module explores the technologies, materials and applications of 3D printing, with a focus on 3D modeling software. In the end, participants will be able to design, model and produce any kind of 3D object. 

    • Physical Computing

      Introduction to creation of electronic circuits with controllers, sensors and actuators and to the acquisition of the processing based programming language Arduino. Processing is a popular prototyping instrument, which is useful for very different projects, like 3D printing, interactive installations, and video control.
      The proximity between Processing and Arduino environments makes possible for every student to learn two languages employing just one. 

    • Smart Design Studio I

      Design and fabrication of an interactive installation of about 2x2m big, 1:1 scale, using the numeric control machine. A series of short design workshops aims at developing specific skills on innovative and emerging sustainable design systems such as cnc wooden structures, photoactive envelope surfacing, design for emergency, etc. 

    • Smart Design Studio II – Reducing Energy

      Design of a residential unit from the conceptual definition to the pre-executive phase of design, using IES Architectural software package. The Unit will be completely in wood, reversible, and autonomous in terms of energy production and usage. The use of this software package is very common among top Engineers and the training provided by this module make students able to work as such high levels, to easily collaborate and to exchange models with professionals – facilitating an improved integrated and data driven process. 

    • Energetic Solutions

      Theoretical lectures on contemporary technologies used in Architecture and Engineering to reduce energetic wastes and to produce energy from renewable sources. Sudents use Ecotect software, which enables the evaluation of: climate data of different places all around the world; shadow analysis at urban scale in order to define the best orientation, distances, and height of buildings; shadow analysis at building scale, solar energy on a specific surface of a building, daylight factor analysis and daylight distribution inside a building.

    • Sustainable Engineering

      Classes dedicated to specific topics on technology integration in Architecture and Engineering. This module consists of lectures by guests coming from different institutions and companies who contribute with their professional experience to the debate around the main issues of sustainable engineering. 

    • Smart Building Thesis

      Urban or landscape scale project. Students are asked to develop their Final Project as a sustainable built environment with specific features such as energy consumptions reduction through passive and robotic based active strategies; energy from renewable resources; physical connection to the web as part of a smart city. Students work both on a design and on a prototypal phase and the project will be presented at the end of the Master course during an open event at the presence of local stakeholders.
