The right term to introduce this number is sensitivity . The theme of WOO n5, in fact, introduces the difference between looking and seeing , a diversity that can only be absorbed in its total awareness through enormous perceptibility. The first action we do, before marking the sketch roll, is the search for references, one of the most difficult moments of the design process. There is no rule: their research, their choice, knowing how to read them carefully provides a guide that acts as a dialogic counterpart. Investigate the complexity of the completed project, the single element, the method (if any) of reasoning about the opportunity to study other completed architectures for the success of a good project. So you need to read and to quote Bruno Zevi knowing how to see architecture considering its protagonist, space.

Can you tell me about an architectural project that was important in your formation and that you consider appropriate to share with us students? and what do you think is the most representative design of this project? What is the role of references for an architecture student?

These are the questions we asked 12 professors of the Dd'A. Read their answers >>
