Summary

The environment we live in nowadays is very complex and the architect is forced to work on the existing heritage paying particular attention to its sustainability and considering the enviroment together with the built heritage as a resource to protect. The new MSc programme "Architectural Design and History" is offering a study plan based on this very attitude. Its mission is to train students to be cultured architects, well-aware of the historic and artistic context in which they work as well as of the other cultural fields. New designs shall be included in and compared to the already existing ones. The respect of the built heritage is the starting point for the new design to become a reutilization project, a requalification project, sometimes even completion and new integration.
