The course in Urban Morphology, optional, in English, provides 4 credits and is open to all students, including Erasmus ones.
The purpose of the morphological studies proposed by the course is the knowledge of the characters of the built environment and the recognition of its formation and transformation, having as ultimate goal the architectural design open to multiple esthetic synthesis.
It aims to teach a method of reading the physical form of the city through the understanding of the forming process common to urban fabrics and buildings, The term “reading” not indicates the neutral recording of phenomena, but an awareness which requires the active and dynamic contribution of the reader.
The basic notions of urban organism and forming process will be provided.
CONDUCT OF THE COURSE
The course will consist of:
Students will be evaluated through an oral test. They will choose one of the following forms of exam:
The students will be free to present their individual notebook and all the works they consider useful for evaluation.

DRACO/ SAPIENZA – KAEBUP / ERASMUS PLUS
Innovative teaching and urban form practicing.
Thursday 27 October 2022 – h.10.00 CET
Faculty of Architecture – Sapienza, University of Rome
Aula Magna – Piazza Fontanella Borghese
This meeting, organized by the Draco doctorate of the Sapienza, University of Rome, will present two different and complementary experiments in teaching urban form developed inside the Kaebup European research, aimed at demonstrating the value of these studies in design practice.
The first, the ISSUM summer school held in Rome from 20 to 28 June 2022 in the Ghetto area, is based on the need for theory and method in urban design; the second, the BMW workshop held in Porto from 26 to 29 July, is based, instead, on the practical reasons of the professional practice. Kaebup research (Knowledge Alliance for Evidence-Based Urban Practices) main objective is to create an international educational and training method on urban form studies aimed at the professional activity of architect. Kaebup’s partners comprise HEIs, NGOs and enterprises from different European cities, who have expertise of evidence-based design to benefit from the tools that research can provide to enterprises and from the experience of evidence-based practice.
