Program Description

Semester Program in Architecture

STAR Studium ArchitecturAe Florence Design School

Our motivation in designing these courses is that we want to instill in the students a new form of knowledge through a sensorial experience called "space design experience".

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.

Secondly, the students try to absorb the whole parabola of the laws of composition as elaborated during the Renaissance by 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, 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 vision of the world.
