The course is dedicated to the architectural design of a small unifamiliar house of a given type, specifically a row house. This building is though not conceived as an arbitrary object, like often happens in most contemporary production, but conceived within the formation process of urban tissues. The single building designed by each student is therefore part of a larger scale organism and contributes with its physical consistence to the definition of a part of the city. The teaching of the design skills therefore adheres with the principles of the construction of an environment suitable not only for private functions, but also for social activities.
