Abstract

Within the vast panorama offered by the study programmes of architectural design education, a fundamental role is played by exercises, pedagogical tools used to determine and consolidate specific training steps, defined within each teacher’s syllabus. During the complex temporal organisation of the individual workshop programmes, the exercises set the time by punctuating, step by step, the learning process and by contributing to the definition – sometimes slowly, sometimes very quickly – of the general objectives of the educational experience. While in most design studios the main outcome is the definition of a project that is clearly identified programmatically and dimensionally, from conception to the advanced stages, as well as unambiguously located in time and space, the journey towards that result is often determined by a planned sequence of exercises. Exercises are tools, expedients, pedagogical devices: both specific and less exhaustive, sometimes abstract and extra-disciplinary, through their making, composing and arranging themselves in a sequence that follows the tempo of the studio, they are instrumental in structuring the design methodology. Stoà 4 brings together a collection of essays, images and interviews, through which to investigate the potentialities and criticalities of this methodological resource, between depth and extension, through a recognition of pedagogical practices and international experiences.
