BEAUTY TO CHALLENGE THE WORLD. DO YOU BELIEVE IT?
A NEW CONCEPT OF SCHOOL
The characteristic of these courses is that academic theory is combined with practice on real work environment where every day, every hour we subvert ourself and the world.
SEMESTER PROGRAM WITH CREDITS AND PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATE OF PRACTICE
The objective of our architecture courses is
provide students the skills to articulate, through the form compositional order, the language of shape and the syntax of urban spaces, a work of architecture in relation to construction technique and social problems. Is possible study architecture in the laboratories and design exercises will address different scales from urban design down to technical details, in order to outline and verify, among all the factors inherent to the project, a Unitarian approach. Consequently, in the architecture programs, the projects generate an identity clearly recognizable at every typology of intervention, from small simple works to more complex buildings. Our architecture classes have several duration from on one to three months.
To study architecture abroad is a great adventure for who comes to Italy. Our architecture courses start in January, May and September.

PROSPECTUS OF ARCHITECTURE INTERNSHIP COURSE
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 pratical 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.
