To this end, in addition to the disciplines relating to planning and drawing, all those relating to construction materials and the related processing techniques will be studied in depth in the course; the history and criticism of architecture, design and the figurative arts; the basic principles of visual languages as tools and codes of invention; modeling applied to design.

After a basic first year aimed at establishing and consolidating the operating method and culture of the creative project, in the following two years all the technical aspects and experiences useful for the profession are progressively addressed.
