Prospectus of Architecture Master in Italy
Our motivation thinking and designing the difference between this course and all the Masters in architecture, is that we want, in our Msc architecture, to instill in the students a new form of knowledge through a sensorial experience called " Perception in Design ".
How we do this? We start with the phases of reception through knowledge of the history of a place ( every week a new site ) where we discover and understand the facts that changed the course of history and gave us a new conception of space. In fact what we do in life echoes in eternity if we start from BEAUTY to challenge ourselves, our personality, and the world.
Secondly, the students try to absorb the whole parabola of the laws of composition as elaborated during the lecture by the practical experience of technical drawing and sketching. Thus they are able to gain awareness of the invisible structures implicit in shape, materials, light, and function.
To conclude the process of learning, in our master of architecture course in Florence after receiving and absorbing the universal rules of composition they can attempt to interpret a new shape inside the space they have studied.
The way to insert a new form springs from these classic rules and it will blossom into a youthful and exciting new vision of the world and its shapes.
