Faculty profile

Profile of the faculty

The Department of Architecture carries out education and research activities regarding territories, cities and buildings, in all their humanistic, technical and scientific forms, and at various scales of contemporary design. These activities are integrated with many initiatives to open the university to the outside world and to cultivate international relations. We are an extremely active, small to medium sized school, with a prominent national and international profile. Our educational model emphasizes the central role of architecture and promotes a strong interest in history, in the humanities and heritage, in construction and applied scientific and technological research, and in urban and territorial contextualization. In the context of the profound and rapid transformations that have affected our reference productive sectors, the department questions itself operationally on the contribution that the profession of architecture can make to the great issues of our time, on the Italian educational model applied to architecture schools, on the prospects of architectural research, on interdisciplinary practices, and on new relations between hard and soft skills.

Roma Tre University was founded in 1992. It is the youngest University in Rome.

The European and international professional scenario demands comprehensive training in scientific, humanistic and cultural foundations that is, at the same time, dynamic and open to innovation and research. For this reason, the department’s teaching is structured in three cycles:

The first cycle aims to impart an articulated and complete basic training. The second cycle aims to develop advanced and comprehensive professional training, with a distinct cultural and operational orientation. The third cycle is dedicated to fostering an up-to-date and critical specialization. All the five-year programmes offered by the department are published in the Official European Journal. Graduates that pass the professional architect’s state exam can enrol in the national orders, under Section A, and establish their own professional activity and headquarters in any European Union member state.

The three-year degree course in Architectural Sciences consists of a balanced and cultured syllabus of the essential scientific, humanistic, historical and instrumental components of architectural culture. All subjects deal with both theoretical and applicative aspects, while investigative project work, the true catalyst of teaching, brings together and experiments with various strands of knowledge. The primary goal is to build a foundation of training for the continuation of architectural studies, whether at Roma Tre or another Italian or European university. For this reason, the course is designed with a strong degree of compatibility with equivalent courses in Architectural Sciences. Another equally important training goal is to provide an articulated and useful cultural basis for all those not pursuing such studies, but rather intending to develop one of the multiple professional careers in construction or to continue differently oriented studies, including Master’s degrees in Design, Landscaping, Conservation, Planning, Arts, and so on. Admissions to the degree course are regulated by Italian Ministerial Decree, pursuant to European Council Directive 85/384/EEC, as amended, establishing the administration of a national admissions test and the number of places available for each location according to a national ranking. At the end of the five-year cycle, that is the 3 year bachelor’s degree plus the 2 year master’s degree, graduates can freely exercise their profession and establish their own business in any European Union member state. The organization of the course facilitates student mobility through an extremely varied offer of institutional agreements with both European and non-European foreign universities, including 80 scholarships at 56 locations in the European Erasmus programme and 37 agreements with non-European universities in Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, China and the USA. The course does not currently provide for mandatory curricular internships. However, in terms of credits reserved for Supplementary Training Activities, professional internships may be carried out in private studios or public institutions, both in Italy and abroad, for which the department has numerous agreements with various professional entities, with a view to bridging the gap between academic training and the world of work.

Architecture: Architectural Design

The two-year Master of Science in ‘Architecture: Architectural Design‘ places architectural design at the centre of the teaching experience. Its main training goal is to impart knowledge and know-how on managing the entire production process of quality architecture, from conceptualization to construction, with particular attention paid to the interaction between a building and its environment and context, to habitability conditions, and to consistency in structural, formal, typological, distributive and technological choices. Based on a highly developed critical, historical and scientific culture regarding the tools of design disciplines and the language of architecture, the syllabus aims to provide advanced professional knowledge on all manner of architectural choices and the evaluation of their technical and economic feasibility. The study topics concern as vast and articulated a field of applications in the panorama of contemporary architecture as possible, and are oriented to help students acquire advanced project management skills and tools that will facilitate their integration into the world of work. Every year, the degree programme fixes the number of admissions, and students intending to enrol must submit a preliminary application by the date set by Rector’s office for that year. If the number of preliminary applications exceeds available places, a meritocratic ranking is formed. Mandatory curricular requirements for access to the course include the fulfilment of the essential training listed in the Architectural Sciences L-17 requirements table. The organization of the course facilitates student mobility through an extremely varied offer of institutional agreements with both European and non-European foreign universities, including 80 scholarships at 56 locations in the European Erasmus programme and 37 agreements with non-European universities in Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, China and the USA. The course does not currently provide for mandatory curricular internships. However, in terms of credits reserved for Supplementary Training Activities, professional internships may be carried out in private studios or public institutions, both in Italy and abroad, for which the department has numerous agreements with various professional entities, with a view to bridging the gap between academic training and the world of work. Graduates can access post-graduate training programmes, such as specialization schools, masters, research masters and doctorates, and carry out a wide range of professional activities, both independently and for institutional bodies, public and private companies, professional studios, and promotional and engineering firms operating in architectural and urban design fields, sector industries and construction. To enter the profession, after passing the state exam, graduates can enrol in one of the national orders of Architects, Planners, Landscapers and Conservators, under Section A: Architecture. Graduates can also freely exercise their profession and establish their business in any European Union member state.

 

Architecture: Urban Planning

The two-year master’s degree in ‘Architecture: Urban Design‘ bring the design process to the broad urban context with a view to harmonizing compositional, urbanistic, functional, environmental, social and economic factors in relation to the modern and pre-existing urban fabric. The aim is to train professionals aware of and capable of participating in the processes of transformation and regeneration of the contemporary cityscape, of contributing to enhancing the quality of the urban environment and its spaces in terms of environmental and ecological sustainability, livability, accessibility and usability, through targeted design, assessment and communications techniques, descriptive media and digital representation tools, including Geographic Information Systems, big data management, three-dimensional modelling, smart city and smart environment concepts, and so on. The teaching syllabus is based on knowledge of historical roots and of the current social, political, economic and administrative processes underlying the evolution of the built environment and its environmental context. Study themes and topics revolve around applications of urban design as tools for the realization of complex and integrated projects, with particular reference to emerging national and European planning directives. Every year, the degree programme fixes the number of admissions, and students intending to enrol must submit a preliminary application by the date set by Rector’s office for that year. If the number of preliminary applications exceeds available places, a meritocratic ranking is formed. Mandatory curricular requirements for access to the course include the fulfilment of the essential training listed in the Architectural Sciences L-17 requirements table. The organization of the course facilitates student mobility through an extremely varied offer of institutional agreements with both European and non-European foreign universities, including 80 scholarships at 56 locations in the European Erasmus programme and 37 agreements with non-European universities in Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, China and the USA.

Graduates can also freely exercise their profession and establish their business in any European Union member state.

 

Architecture: Restoration

The two-year Master’s Degree in ‘Architecture: Restoration’ focuses on the application of the design approach to the heritage of buildings and monuments as a crucial and distinct aspect of the profession, with the restoration of monuments being the only design activity exclusively reserved to architects. The degree course expands and builds on the specific disciplines of the Architectural Sciences course, studying a wide range of urban building methods and techniques and providing opportunities for applied experimentation and the development of projects to recover architectural heritage quality, in relation to both archaeological and monumental aspects, and to the building context and the historical urban environment. The goal is to provide a study programme on the various themes of the enhancement of architectural heritage, from both a scientific and operational point of view, through a balance of theoretical and applied teaching. Every year, the degree programme fixes the number of admissions, and students intending to enrol must submit a preliminary application by the date set by Rector’s office for that year. If the number of preliminary applications exceeds available places, a meritocratic ranking is formed. Mandatory curricular requirements for access to the course include the fulfilment of the essential training listed in the Architectural Sciences L-17 requirements table.

Architecture: innovation and heritage

The aim of the Program is the training of specialists in the problematical issues related to ancient, modern and contemporary architecture. Such issues concern plans and construction matters that are different in scale, environmental and economical sustainability, energy saving solutions, maintenance and management. This Ph.D. program is subdivided into the following curriculum: – Curriculum 1 – Culture of Building; – Curriculum 2 – Philological design; – Curriculum 3 – Architecture design within an ancient country.

Landscape of the contemporary city. Policies, techniques and visual studies

Object of study and research of the Doctorate in Landscapes of the Contemporary City is the city, understood as a set of material and social relationships and spatial shapes and communicative forms. The contemporary city seems to realize a future different from the one announced by modern and positivist evolutionary science and not sequential in a logical sense with events. Inside the contemporary city there is space for the contradictory presence of high technology buildings and self-builders’ ones, informal and planned spaces, immaterial and physical architectures, static and dynamic settings. The Doctoral Program is part of this conceptual framework and within the changes, sometimes radical, of the cultural and operating instruments that are typical both of communication and design and urban architecture. The Program is based on the synergy between different knowledge and disciplines afferent to the fields of the urban public space design and the visual studies, which identify the city and the architecture as their own preferential research field. The objective of the Doctoral program is the output of advanced studies and researches about the interpretation of urban and territorial phenomena, the architectural and the landscape design inside the contemporary city, the development and interpretation of the visual devices of and connected productions, starting with cinema and the different current technical reproduction solutions.

The three most representative lines of the department’s research, clearly recognizable both in doctorates and research laboratories, are Architecture and Heritage, Urban and Territorial Studies, and Architecture and Innovation Sciences. These are central themes in political, social and scientific questions that, today, can be addressed to the field of architecture and all disciplines that guarantee its cultural credibility and continuing relevance. With this mind, the department’s lecturers invest ever more energy into research projects committed to the innovation, development and knowledge demanded by cities, historical and contemporary landscapes, the world of construction and the industrial production sector.
