The discipline of Drawing aims to promote the representation and knowledge of the visible world and the mental images through manual graphic skills, in accordance with the following objectives:
- To develop the student's the ability to observe;
- To develop the ability and knowledge about the act of drawing and the sensitivity to plastic and aesthetic values;
- To create conditions for the student to face the act of projecting with spontaneity, agility and awareness;
- To stimulate the presence in the act of project of non systematic, symbolic and poetic components.
- To promote the appreciation and understanding of the need and pleasure of representation;
- To recognize drawing as a graphic expression of an intention;
- To understand that you can learn how to draw through the practice of drawing.

History of Ancient and Medieval Architecture

200202 - ECTS

To understand the conceptual and technical magnitude of ancient and medieval architectonic expressions in their specific territorial and urban, formal and constructive dimensions. 
To contribute to the development of an inquisitive introductory methodology to the study of the History of Architecture which may become a matrix to address the historic context of architectonic units, regardless of the time and space to which they belong, in terms of location, function, form, technique, image, symbol and meaning. 

Architectural Design 1

100101 - ECTS

Because this course is occurring during the propaedeutic year of studies, it aims to:
- approach the generic problematics of Architecture;
- manage the basic tools for projecting;
- introduce students to project methodology.

General Theory of Spatial Organization

100102 - ECTS

The main goals of this discipline (TGOE - TEORIA GERAL DA ORGANIZAÇÃO DO ESPAÇO/ GENERAL THEORY OF THE ORGANIZATION OF THE SPACE) is to get the students familiar with the greatest number of specific kind of spaces, as well as with the various concepts competing for its characterization: from "natural landscapes" to "humanized space", from medieval city space to contemporary one, from urban space to architectural space, from the public to the domestic ambiences.

To develop drawing praxis – the singularity of its expression and individual adequateness
(manners, techniques and systems of representation) – in such a way that it favours a free and effective construction of images closely related to architectural project.

History of Modern Architecture

300302 - ECTS

History of architecture has to be understood as an art that is attaining step by step a scientific goal and not, in any case, like a evocative summing up of buildings, cities, and interventions on natural landscape in order to achieve the basic means of life in an artificial HABITAT.

The history of modern architecture aims the acquaintance of the generally so called classical architecture. The chronological scope of this discipline mediates from the end of Middle Ages until the beginning of neo-classical period.

The history of modern architecture archives that are dealt with in this discipline are mostly the deeds of “stone and plaster”. The student is invited to understand how the architect/builder of those times could deal with the architectural concepts for the coeval time being, giving them form and substance, i.e., turning the architectural concept into the architectonic matter.

The knowledge of architecture could not survive without the written documents as well as drawings that, sometimes are due to arise some unexpected hypothesis to understand unconventional matters.


Architectural Design 2

200201 - ECTS

The vertical structure of the Course in the design area proposes for the 2nd year an introduction on the issues of design methodology and the continuity of the learning process started in the 1st year, developing and consolidating the instrumental and conceptual capacities for the design exercise. This practice presumes the capacity of experimentation and synthesis of diverse convergent issues on the architecture field, which will always be subjacent in the proposal of an architectonic form.
The 2nd year design process should focus on the renovation of a consolidated city area, easily identifiable, proposing buildings of variable dimension and complexity with an equipment and restaurant program. It should privilege the analysis of the building set, the public space and the city, using as support architecture and urban history and architectonic analysis methodology, with the goal that each student builds and fundaments its reading of the site. The process of intervention and context observation should lead to the identification and characterization of the diverse architectonic elements and forms that constitute the design area and its meaning in the city history, aiming an objective validity of each transformation proposed. This should result from a process in which the area knowledge and the creative and critic capacity of the student reveals a progressive improvement of the proposal validity and its design.

Architectural Theory 1

200203 - ECTS

The objectives, skills and outcome of the learning process are:
1 - To make the student familiar with the subject of Architectural Theory, in its specificities as well as with the interactions it establishes with other fields (i.s. Design, History, Building, Planning) 

2 - To make the student familiar with a sequence of theoretical movements, architectural languages and architecture' thinkers who left their mark in the developing of Architecture and in the field of Theory in particular.

3 - To develop general knowledge, critical capacity and personal interests that will support the student in his architectural practices and design experiences.

Geography

20203A2 - ECTS

 

When social dynamics change, so does the mode of appropriation and transformation of the territory. This issue requires not only the constantly review of the conceptual and theoretical geography tools, but also to update the knowledge of empirical reality, in the case of Portugal.

 

 

 

 

 

In general, students of architecture have a very poor training in Geography, a situation that becomes complicated when this gap is filled with inaccurate information too superficial and "common sense". In addition, the disciplinary body of Geography (Physical and Human) is extremely broad and includes other specializations and areas of interest shared by other knowledge fields. Geography by itself doesn’t fill this gap, nevertheless is possible to focus the objectives in some fields of interest that Geography, Architecture and Urbanism share, developing the theoretical discussion of common concepts and theories (urban, rural, city and country, urbanization, etc.)

 


 

Large Urban Projects

Large Urban Projects

20204A2 - ECTS

The main objective of this unit is to stimulate curricular compreensão, under the big projectos urban problems of scale in intervenções, the role of agents transformação urban questão of the value of the land and the importance of the "Project Financing".

Opção U.Porto (Urbanistica)

2UP2 - ECTS

Building Construction 2

300304 - ECTS

The goal of this discipline is to introduce the theme of building construction, especially the understanding of the physics of buildings, which is the basis for the exercise of the project in its transition from project to construction.

It is intended that students learn about the following topics: Project and innovation; systems and construction elements; building functions and requirements; types of materials, their application and behavior; the stakeholders in the construction, function and responsibility; the concepts of building construction, phasing and management; the legal framework concerning the construction of buildings.

History of Contemporary Architecture

500502 - ECTS The aim of History of Contemporary Architecture is the critical knowledge of the architecture of contemporary age, considered as the period that begins wioth the end of baroque architecture and ends in present time. In the mid eighteenth century, the rise of the scientific archeology (with the separation between archeologists and architects) and the enlargement of the antiquity sources, no more predominantly related to roman examples, have an important role in a new way of understanding the relation of architecture with its own past. In this period different motivations intersect: the search of the origins as a new fundament of knowledge, the reorganization of the industrial city, the abstraction and the rise of the modern movement, the discussion of its principles after World War II, etc. The year 1750, a possible beginning of this period, is the date of Denis Diderot's publication of the "Prospectus" of the Encyclopédie, witch would initiate its publication the following year.
In the lectures, the most important buildings, architectural projects and ideas of the period will be exposed diachronically. The particular circumstances of the architectural works will be discussed, but also its precedents and its consequences on other works in a broader time perspective.The relation with Portuguese examples will also be discussed, underlying their particular circumstances.
One work of contemporary Portuguese architecture, chosen by the students according to their interests, will be the subject of the group work. Throughout  the year, with a tutorial guidance, the students must extend and develop the reasons that gave rise to the initial choice. Starting from contemporary debate, they must also research new relations that problematize the work of architecture studied throughout the academic year.
The students will also visit some contemporary Portuguese architectural works that must be photographed and assembled in a field note book. This notebook is a complement of the lectures, but it is also a way to investigate the relations between the works visited and the architectural work studied in their group work.

Architectural Design 3

300301 - ECTS

Objectives

Project 3 takes for granted the methodological skills and tecnical design handling necessarily acquired in previous years, having to test and develop them in order to increase the knowledge and experience of students to a superior level of capabilities and requirements.
Under the general theme of multifamily housing and the city as a framework, are carried out a series of exercises that enhance experimentation, reflection and the ability of materializing extensive projectual knowledge about Architectural Design and Architecture.
First of all, to make the general approach of the issues and problems of collective housing, defined as reflection on modes of living, as a test of the definition of programs and development of cell-spaces that reflect, as well as the study the association of these cells by systems and rules that constitute an effective link and empowering capable of contributing clear gains for the individual residence. It also intends, through the study of fires, distribution systems, the associations into modules and the conformation of the building, make informed and consistent choices typological possible. It is also to do so in an urban setting, forcing to study and understand the procedures and training elements of the urban fabric and the identification of their morphology, studying how to carry out a housing program defines substantial, is, alter or rebuild new urban fabric. Thus, the integration of the two components to reflect and understand the interdependence, the dialectical relationship between urban insertion, the urban morphology and architectural typology housing.
The exercises provided are also intended to advance the experience and skills of design students in three key areas: first in the vastness and complexity of the problems with the gradual introduction of programmatic constraints, urban and legal issues that interfere with the process simpler definition of the form exercised in previous years. Second, the particular difficulties and the potential that the joint work at the same time scales from 1 / 1000 to 1 / 2 provides, that is, checking interdependencies and mutual stimulation between the urban and the general design or detail of the buildings . Third, not least, to treat intensively the constructive aspects, both in its general logic or wisdom in detail, students have the opportunity to realize that they must materialize in a rigorous way, the desired construction, constituting more than one mere addition of information, an essential part of the work of shaping the expression of architecture and provide an opportunity for synthesis of language and construction, with implications and effect on larger scales and throughout the final result.
The general framework of these exercises is relatively conservative. It is understood that the approach to the subject of housing and collective or multifamily dwelling goes better with the qualifying of the banal, than the playing with the  exceptionality of the speculation, be it programmatic, functional or formal - although not neglecting it. before with the knowing that in it, all students can, without limiting the level of quality or depth, gain strength for other requirements.
From this year on, a Laboratory component will be experimented, simultaneously and parallel to the indicated program, electing, annually, a particular sub-theme of the universe of multi-family housing. For the year 2018-19 will be to "inhabit the ground floor" exploring its potentialities and limitations.

Architectural Theory 2

300303 - ECTS

What is it to have a theoretical discourse that, inquiring, balancing and informing invention and discipline, work and knowledge, identifies-agitates-translates a particular way to act and think – architecture –, looses space | time | subject | object of frontiers and conventional oppositions and promotes a few constructions of thought which mediate the projectual action, being aware that “all conflict is on projects and not on this or that discipline” (B. Miranda)?

How could we establish a critical discourse on architecture that reflects propositively upon its actions, without thereby evading the spaces of the specific problems of the discipline and/or evading the materials of the project’s house-body, in its action towards the definition of places, the production of meanings, the signs of a speech?

Aiming the mobility of the meanings and the complexity of the materials offered to the construction of architecture, how could we creatively serve its destiny of architecture as expression and physical projection of the imagination, as experimentation and experience, as knowledge and happening, without subverting its “adventurous coherence” by the arbitrary and abusive manipulation of the complexity of the materials that organize it?

 

Urbanistics 1

300305 - ECTS

The discipline of Urbanística 1 proposes a reflection on the meanings inherent to the contexts and processes of conformation and evolution of the city and the territories of urbanization, observing the results of the different models, forms and scales of action, within the respective agents' realm and technical and operational assumptions.
The understanding of (intervention in) city and territory naturally presupposes an interdisciplinary approach and the correct interpretation of the relationships between urban practices and physical, social, economic and political structures, their intrinsic characteristics and rules, identifying the permanence factors and the dynamics of change inherent in the very facts and processes to be recognized.
An objective and coherent perception of urban phenomena is sought as resultants and/or determinants of the interaction between programs, plans and projects (public spaces, infrastructure and architecture), their forms of concretion, articulation and management, especially with the generalization of the urban and territorial planning actions that aggregate several areas of scientific knowledge.

Architecture and Design 1

30318B3 - ECTS

Verifica-se hoje, entre os estudantes, uma notória dificuldade em identificar, observar, anotar e reter, com rapidez e eficiência, muitos dos factos e formas estruturantes na composição de uma obra arquitectónica. De modo a complementar a percepção fugaz potenciada pela celeridade dos meios de difusão de imagens arquitectónicas correntes na internet, perdendo-se o processo lento de apreensão e o hábito de “estudo de projecto”, interessa, enquanto objectivo pedagógico, fomentar a capacidade de concentrar o olhar sobre os factos relevantes de uma imagem, de um desenho ou de um comentário, com acuidade e eficácia. Consequentemente, o objectivo da UC é ajudar a criar e desenvolver a capacidade de observar, destacar e compreender (e representar, pelo desenho rápido), os significantes arquitectónicos essenciais à análise de projecto.

History of Portuguese Architecture

400402 - ECTS

The course aims at the acquisition of knowledge of Portuguese architecture, including with reference to architectures from other Iberian, European and Mediterranean spaces (and other parts of the world), so as to understand the encounter of cultures and interpret signs of specificity and identity of Portuguese architecture.

Architectural Design 4

400401 - ECTS

The aim of this Subject is the consolidation of the methods of project processes. It is considered that this consolidation should be done and confirmed through exercises with varying degrees of complexity, with special attention to the treatment and development of a solution for a Subject. This requires a work of architectural synthesis in its different program, contextual, functional, constructive and formal components that allows the student to enhance the knowledge indispensable to submit a projectual answer.

Structural Systems

400404 - ECTS This course unit aims to provide a clear understanding of the principles and methods governing the definition of the structural solution within the architectural design of buildings.
Starting from a deeper understanding of the mechanical behavior of the main structural elements types, it is expected that the student acquires a set of structural design guiding principles, coupled with simplified methods of structural analysis, adequate to promote a rapid and reliable verification of the solution.

Architectural Theory 3

400403 - ECTS 1. Concepts acquired in precedent units of architectural theory will be enlarged and methods oriented towards autonomous thinking required for nestling personal research fields.
2. Information and critical analysis of cases will be inscribed in the pursuit of a definition of Public Space as a space category, architectonic, morphologically related to Forms of Residence and Forms of Institutions.
3. Theoretical and critical knowledge endeavours strategic formulation which, in the domain of Architecture, is operated and attains full expression by the project.
4. Experimental research is the essential requirement for any theoretical formulation in Teoria 3, followed by the demands of demonstration (facts and arguments) through the disciplinary instruments of architecture (hand and computer drawing, measuring and calculation, photographic or other image capture means, graphic design of text and image maters) complemented by bibliographic and iconographic research and new findings in archives, eventually by interview (architects, urban designers and planners).
5. To build state of the art knowledge about the physical organization of Public Space, embraced under the unitary concept of Forms of the Institutions, by means of systematic study of existing cases, in Portuguese soil or abroad. Observation, register and comprehension must be undertaken as an exercise of methodical search both for architectonic universals and circumstantial factors that individuate Form.
6. New technologies required by Teoria 3, for production, register, discussion and archive, have the primary purpose of development both instrumental crafts and communication habits, that serve in first instance, freedom of speech fed by debate apprenticeship and, as equally valuable, the digital archive that allow others to read, criticise and continue one’s work.

Urbanisation of Poverty

50135C5 - ECTS Nowadays, more than half of the world's population lives in urban areas, with around a quarter of this population living in extreme precarious conditions and an additional portion facing relevant gaps in its habitat. Estimates seem to indicate that this percentage has declined, but numbers will have increased, and the inequity of economic incomes will also have increased, especially in the economies considered as more developed.

In this way, the debate on equity is a global issue, from the countries of the North to the countries of the South, and that action in the environment built for more equitable spaces and democratic access to urban resources is, a challenge for architects and urban planners.

Given the most recent and contrasting global dynamics of urbanization and the current professional challenges placed at the international level, this curricular unit intends to create a theoretical and practical field of discussion around the spatialization of poverty and the disparities in this process of urbanization, social concerns in the disciplinary field of architecture and urbanism, as well as the limitations and potentialities of redistributive policies, social interest and fair management of the built environment.

Thus, it is proposed here the study of the disparities in the processes of production and management of the built environment, namely, discussing the visibility and role of population groups with lower economic incomes, both focusing on non-Western contexts (in the experiences of Latin America, Asia and in Africa) and in the critical areas of the Western contexts (in the evolution of social policy and in its current situation).

The aim is to establish a broad understanding of issues related to the urbanization process, not only by discussing extreme conditions of disparities and / or limiting resources, but also by framing multi-stakeholder management mechanisms. In these contexts, the professional practice of the architect / urbanist is rarely placed solely in a client - service provider relationship, but rather the actors involved in the decision - making process, recurrently encompassing entities such as public structures for territorial regulation and social interest ( at the central, municipal and / or local level), external financiers, international agencies, nongovernmental organizations, local associations and / or inhabitants, placing the architect / urbanist in the role of mediator and facilitator.

Thus, it is proposed to build an informed view of paradoxical realities, discussing methodologies and intervention tools, constraints and potentialities, experiences and strategic orientations of work in extended teams.

Arquitectura do Espaço Público

50129C5 - ECTS

1 Theoretical and practical aproach to public spaces as architectonic entities composed by all kinds of buildings, urban infrastructures and natural forms.
2. Comprehension of the Architecture of Public Space in the context of the Significant Forms, socialy inclusive and sustainable.
3. Experimental research and personal thinking practiced with the instruments of architecture (hand and computer design and modeling, subject to measure, geometry and construction reasoning); photo, bibliography and other iconography location and credits.
4 Selection of critical arguments for the architecture of Public Space supported by the experimental case study.
5. Case study will be chosen by the student among several proposes presented by the professor, either as an individual work and/or after the constitution of teams.

Architecture and Cinema

50137C5 - ECTS The Course will systematize the affinities between architecture and cinema. It will explore how urban and architectural space, real or staged, is a constituent element of cinema, and will analyze the multiple dimensions in which cinema can be seen as a tool in the creative process, the perception and dissemination of architecture.

It will address how the moving images have the capacity to create a 'sense of place', a phenomenon related not only to the physical reality of the filmed spaces but also to the experiential connection that the viewer establishes with light, sound, the mise-en-scène or the narrative structure. Cinema represents architectural spaces as 'inhabited' places, stimulating, thus, an intense debate around architecture and urban life.

Arquitetura e Clima. Fundamentos para o desenho da Casa Bem-temperada

50139C5 - ECTS
The main objective of this curricular unit is to deepen the knowledge in Architecture in its technical and formal dimension directly related to the climatic conditions and the inhabit space, in the framework of sustainable development. Based on elementary theoretical principles on climate, energy and thermal comfort - placed in a historical and contemporary perspective - we seek the understanding of integrated and exemplary building technological solutions, opening a critical reflection about design practices in its profound relation with the place.

Architecture: Processes of transformation in teaching / learning

50138C5 - ECTS

Object:
Transformation processes in the scientific-artistic higher education-Porto/Portugal: 1950/2016.

Framing/objectives:
This course of the MIARQ arises from the need to deepen a field of theoretical reflection on the binomial art/science in the higher level teaching/learning equation in Portugal.

Considering the research processes developed by its teachers in this field of studies wich lead to their PhD thesis and in the context of a multidisciplinary and trans-disciplinary project established between the Faculties of Architecture, Fine Arts and Psychology and Education Sciences of the University of Porto, it aims to broaden the scientific knowledge produced and, combining it with the pedagogical practices and didactics proper of a second cycle of studies, to be an integrated line of interdisciplinary studies.

Through an objective need to contribute to the fixation of collective memory, regarding at the generation and consolidation of the "School of Porto" and all the other institutions formed from it, considering national and international contexts, their intersections and interferences and those that, especially after the implementation of the "Reforma de 1957", have been creating different forms of affirmation in academia and in society, in the academic, professional, social and political spheres, revisiting the passed to understand the questions of contemporaneity, it's pretended to enlarge it by the information and interpretation of the studies that may result from the curricular work.

Observing the current durricular offer (FAUP and UP) and the possible benefits of mixing students from different scientific areas to establish specific knowledge in an interdisciplinary way, it's intended to enrich their curricula through specialized studies in the last years of the master; eventually guide them in possible research paths in order to support their thesis processes or final project; open perspectives in the area of Architecture and its transversals with other areas, in order to motivate them to attend to third-cycle courses or to follow a research career.

Finally, it is the aim of this UC to contribute to the understanding of the contemporary situation regarding at the study, understanding and interpretation of the processes of transformation in the scientific-artistic higher education in Portugal (1950/2016).

Communication, Photography and Multimedia

50118C5 - ECTS

The general objectives of Communication, Photography and Multimedia (CFM) are twofold. On one hand, to give theoretical and practical knowledge for using critically photography as a research instrument and support for communicating and representing Architecture, city and Territory. On the other hand, to raise the awareness of students for using different qualitative methods to conduct research using visual instruments for inquiring critically those spaces.

Initially students are asked to analyze, question and confront a set of public spaces and architecture, exploring the potential of photography, as well as the accessibility and interactivity on the Internet for communicating different experiences and perceptions of urban space. During the semester the students create a visual portfolio using diverse collaborative platforms on the web. This portfolio consists of an interactive visual narrative made up with images and text supporting a set of ideas that posit a position, argument or story about a particular subject or problem of the urban area being studied.

This portfolio can be used later as the basis for a case study related to research on photography and digital media applied to the reading of public space and architecture, and therefore integrated in the work of the thesis to finalize the second cycle of the course.

Concepção e Experimentação Estrutural

50143C5 - ECTS

The course unit aims to bring students closer to three types of structural principles – statics, materials and construction – that were on the conceptual genesis of reference structures of the past.
On statics, the objective is to develop an intuitive and holistic relationship between form and structure using graphical methods and physical models. Starting with the simplest structural behavior, arch (compression) and cable (tension), the students will be able to visually understand, qualify and question the behavior of all types of structures.
The students should explore the inner structural behavior of different materials –  e.g. stone works best in compression, steel can work in tension and compression – and understand the common field in which different materials can work together. Each material has an origin, a preferred way of behaving and memory that are deeply linked with the technological development and the local know-how.
Lastly, the student should understand how the production processes, assembly, transportation and constructive processes have influenced and were on the genesis of new solutions. The answer to restrictions, how to overcome difficulties and transgress the existing status quo was key to define new solutions, such as bridges and big span canopies.

Construção da Arquitetura em Madeira

50140C5 - ECTS
The Course Construction Wooden Architecture introduces fundamental principles about materials, particularly about wood, taking into account their properties and industrial wood processing. From material understanding, students are expected their application in the construction of the wooden architecture.The course, as a part of Miarq course, aime initiating and enhancing students' knowledge of wood and also the application of wood in architecture. The justification of this proposal is related to the fact of Portugal, considered as 'forest country', do not use forest resources in building construction. The destruction of the Portuguese forest, wich became visible to the public opinion with the events that ocurred in 2017, raises the issue of the urgency in developing a rational thinking about the potencial of Portuguese forest, and we think that architecture can play an important role for product valuation coming from our forest.

The Course Construction Wooden Architecture aime to extend students' knowledge of wood so they can develop their critical capacity regarding to the use of wood in architecture.

Desenho como método e instrumento de investigação em Arquitetura

50144C5 - ECTS The aim of the course is to create study moments conducive to the development of a practice of research and critical thinking around projects of buildings of particular complexity - equipments - in what concernes with its program and the architectural, structural and constructive solutions that determine it.
The course is based on the centrality of Drawing as an 'instrument of thought' and the construction of an 'intelligent memory', which are considered essential for the development and enrichment of an 'intelligent and instinctive intuition' that we consider to be essential to the architectural practice.
Alexandre Alves Costa summed up the above. About the pedagogical practice at Porto School, he states that "drawing has very quickly demonstrated its usefulness in various fields of architecture learning, first of all in the research of its essence, that of the nature of space, through an analytical process of observation of cases, aiming at composition, proportion, scale, volumetry, structure, textural values, relations with context and even some intangible factors such as light or color.

Porto. Território e redes da invisibilidade.

50142C5 - ECTS

Object:
Process, project and public works of infrastructure of the territory – Porto and "Grande Porto".

Framework/objectives:
The present course arises from the need to deepen the theoretical reflection about process/project/public work attempting on urbanization/infrastructure in Portugal. Combining territory, urbanization, urbanity and memory, it aims to address the need of reweighting the strategies for the space of the city and its territory, underlining the main role of the invisibility networks - artificial and natural ones -, considering their potential to create real conditions for more inclusive, progressive and sustained development and planning, by bumping the current boundaries/barriers of zoning and administrative divisions.

Through an objective need to contribute to preserve collective memory (in a dialectic method between materiality and immateriality), exploring the setting process of the systems and networks of public infrastructure in Portugal, focusing on the period of in-between XIX/XX centuries, starting from the specific case of Porto and "Grande Porto", this course believes that it can enrich it bouth by informing and interpreting the documents and facts or with the studies that may be done during the classes.

Enlarging and spreading this particular scientific knowledge, matching it with the pedagogical and didactic practices proper to an integrated master's degree, this course aims to develop interdisciplinary studies, betting on a collaborative practice between curricular and research spheres (eg. a set of open classes will be available to the academic community).

Observing the curricular offer (FAUP and UP) and the possible benefits of establishing specific knowledge in an interdisciplinary way, it's intended to enrich the students curricula, enabling them the option of proceed specialized studies in the last two years of the master, to show them possible paths for their research process concerning their final master work and, opening perspectives in the area of Architecture and its transversals with other scientific areas, to induce to the frequency of third-cycle courses or to follow the research career.

Finally, it’s aimed to contribute to understand the contemporaneity, by studying, problematizing and interpreting the process, project and public work of infrastructure in Portugal.

Dissertation

500504 - ECTS

Architectural Design 5

500501 - ECTS

Continuing the program, contents and teaching methodology underlying the course developed by Professor Manuel Fernandes de Sá, the aim is to promote a pedagogical process that enables a deep reflection on the territory, the city, the object or the architectural ensemble and considers their interactions, in order to provide the future architect with the ability to intervene in a changing environment, full of differences and uncertainties.

The course Projecto 5 tries to “provide the conditions that allow the development of a thorough reflection on the issues of the city and the territory, discussing methods of approach and planning instruments; disclosing strategic thinking for intervention; proposing ways of managing the uncertainty that underlies the intervention in the city, introducing the issue of multidisciplinary approach and practising the design of the city and the control of urban scale” (Manuel Fernandes de Sá, 2003).

Urbanisation of Poverty

50135C5 - ECTS Nowadays, more than half of the world's population lives in urban areas, with around a quarter of this population living in extreme precarious conditions and an additional portion facing relevant gaps in its habitat. Estimates seem to indicate that this percentage has declined, but numbers will have increased, and the inequity of economic incomes will also have increased, especially in the economies considered as more developed.

In this way, the debate on equity is a global issue, from the countries of the North to the countries of the South, and that action in the environment built for more equitable spaces and democratic access to urban resources is, a challenge for architects and urban planners.

Given the most recent and contrasting global dynamics of urbanization and the current professional challenges placed at the international level, this curricular unit intends to create a theoretical and practical field of discussion around the spatialization of poverty and the disparities in this process of urbanization, social concerns in the disciplinary field of architecture and urbanism, as well as the limitations and potentialities of redistributive policies, social interest and fair management of the built environment.

Thus, it is proposed here the study of the disparities in the processes of production and management of the built environment, namely, discussing the visibility and role of population groups with lower economic incomes, both focusing on non-Western contexts (in the experiences of Latin America, Asia and in Africa) and in the critical areas of the Western contexts (in the evolution of social policy and in its current situation).

The aim is to establish a broad understanding of issues related to the urbanization process, not only by discussing extreme conditions of disparities and / or limiting resources, but also by framing multi-stakeholder management mechanisms. In these contexts, the professional practice of the architect / urbanist is rarely placed solely in a client - service provider relationship, but rather the actors involved in the decision - making process, recurrently encompassing entities such as public structures for territorial regulation and social interest ( at the central, municipal and / or local level), external financiers, international agencies, nongovernmental organizations, local associations and / or inhabitants, placing the architect / urbanist in the role of mediator and facilitator.

Thus, it is proposed to build an informed view of paradoxical realities, discussing methodologies and intervention tools, constraints and potentialities, experiences and strategic orientations of work in extended teams.

Arquitectura do Espaço Público

50129C5 - ECTS

1 Theoretical and practical aproach to public spaces as architectonic entities composed by all kinds of buildings, urban infrastructures and natural forms.
2. Comprehension of the Architecture of Public Space in the context of the Significant Forms, socialy inclusive and sustainable.
3. Experimental research and personal thinking practiced with the instruments of architecture (hand and computer design and modeling, subject to measure, geometry and construction reasoning); photo, bibliography and other iconography location and credits.

5. Case study will be chosen by the student among several proposes presented by the professor, either as an individual work and/or after the constitution of teams.

Architecture and Cinema

50137C5 - ECTS The Course will systematize the affinities between architecture and cinema. It will explore how urban and architectural space, real or staged, is a constituent element of cinema, and will analyze the multiple dimensions in which cinema can be seen as a tool in the creative process, the perception and dissemination of architecture.

It will address how the moving images have the capacity to create a 'sense of place', a phenomenon related not only to the physical reality of the filmed spaces but also to the experiential connection that the viewer establishes with light, sound, the mise-en-scène or the narrative structure. Cinema represents architectural spaces as 'inhabited' places, stimulating, thus, an intense debate around architecture and urban life.

Arquitetura e Clima. Fundamentos para o desenho da Casa Bem-temperada

50139C5 - ECTS
The main objective of this curricular unit is to deepen the knowledge in Architecture in its technical and formal dimension directly related to the climatic conditions and the inhabit space, in the framework of sustainable development. Based on elementary theoretical principles on climate, energy and thermal comfort - placed in a historical and contemporary perspective - we seek the understanding of integrated and exemplary building technological solutions, opening a critical reflection about design practices in its profound relation with the place.

Architecture: Processes of transformation in teaching / learning

50138C5 - ECTS

Object:
Transformation processes in the scientific-artistic higher education-Porto/Portugal: 1950/2016.

Framing/objectives:
This course of the MIARQ arises from the need to deepen a field of theoretical reflection on the binomial art/science in the higher level teaching/learning equation in Portugal.

Considering the research processes developed by its teachers in this field of studies wich lead to their PhD thesis and in the context of a multidisciplinary and trans-disciplinary project established between the Faculties of Architecture, Fine Arts and Psychology and Education Sciences of the University of Porto, it aims to broaden the scientific knowledge produced and, combining it with the pedagogical practices and didactics proper of a second cycle of studies, to be an integrated line of interdisciplinary studies.

Through an objective need to contribute to the fixation of collective memory, regarding at the generation and consolidation of the "School of Porto" and all the other institutions formed from it, considering national and international contexts, their intersections and interferences and those that, especially after the implementation of the "Reforma de 1957", have been creating different forms of affirmation in academia and in society, in the academic, professional, social and political spheres, revisiting the passed to understand the questions of contemporaneity, it's pretended to enlarge it by the information and interpretation of the studies that may result from the curricular work.

Observing the current durricular offer (FAUP and UP) and the possible benefits of mixing students from different scientific areas to establish specific knowledge in an interdisciplinary way, it's intended to enrich their curricula through specialized studies in the last years of the master; eventually guide them in possible research paths in order to support their thesis processes or final project; open perspectives in the area of Architecture and its transversals with other areas, in order to motivate them to attend to third-cycle courses or to follow a research career.

Finally, it is the aim of this UC to contribute to the understanding of the contemporary situation regarding at the study, understanding and interpretation of the processes of transformation in the scientific-artistic higher education in Portugal (1950/2016).

Communication, Photography and Multimedia

50118C5 - ECTS

The general objectives of Communication, Photography and Multimedia (CFM) are twofold. On one hand, to give theoretical and practical knowledge for using critically photography as a research instrument and support for communicating and representing Architecture, city and Territory. On the other hand, to raise the awareness of students for using different qualitative methods to conduct research using visual instruments for inquiring critically those spaces.

Initially students are asked to analyze, question and confront a set of public spaces and architecture, exploring the potential of photography, as well as the accessibility and interactivity on the Internet for communicating different experiences and perceptions of urban space. During the semester the students create a visual portfolio using diverse collaborative platforms on the web. This portfolio consists of an interactive visual narrative made up with images and text supporting a set of ideas that posit a position, argument or story about a particular subject or problem of the urban area being studied.

This portfolio can be used later as the basis for a case study related to research on photography and digital media applied to the reading of public space and architecture, and therefore integrated in the work of the thesis to finalize the second cycle of the course.

Concepção e Experimentação Estrutural

50143C5 - ECTS

The course unit aims to bring students closer to three types of structural principles – statics, materials and construction – that were on the conceptual genesis of reference structures of the past.
On statics, the objective is to develop an intuitive and holistic relationship between form and structure using graphical methods and physical models. Starting with the simplest structural behavior, arch (compression) and cable (tension), the students will be able to visually understand, qualify and question the behavior of all types of structures.
The students should explore the inner structural behavior of different materials –  e.g. stone works best in compression, steel can work in tension and compression – and understand the common field in which different materials can work together. Each material has an origin, a preferred way of behaving and memory that are deeply linked with the technological development and the local know-how.
Lastly, the student should understand how the production processes, assembly, transportation and constructive processes have influenced and were on the genesis of new solutions. The answer to restrictions, how to overcome difficulties and transgress the existing status quo was key to define new solutions, such as bridges and big span canopies.

Construção da Arquitetura em Madeira

50140C5 - ECTS
The Course Construction Wooden Architecture introduces fundamental principles about materials, particularly about wood, taking into account their properties and industrial wood processing. From material understanding, students are expected their application in the construction of the wooden architecture.The course, as a part of Miarq course, aime initiating and enhancing students' knowledge of wood and also the application of wood in architecture. The justification of this proposal is related to the fact of Portugal, considered as 'forest country', do not use forest resources in building construction. The destruction of the Portuguese forest, wich became visible to the public opinion with the events that ocurred in 2017, raises the issue of the urgency in developing a rational thinking about the potencial of Portuguese forest, and we think that architecture can play an important role for product valuation coming from our forest.

The Course Construction Wooden Architecture aime to extend students' knowledge of wood so they can develop their critical capacity regarding to the use of wood in architecture.

Desenho como método e instrumento de investigação em Arquitetura

50144C5 - ECTS The aim of the course is to create study moments conducive to the development of a practice of research and critical thinking around projects of buildings of particular complexity - equipments - in what concernes with its program and the architectural, structural and constructive solutions that determine it.
The course is based on the centrality of Drawing as an 'instrument of thought' and the construction of an 'intelligent memory', which are considered essential for the development and enrichment of an 'intelligent and instinctive intuition' that we consider to be essential to the architectural practice.
Alexandre Alves Costa summed up the above. About the pedagogical practice at Porto School, he states that "drawing has very quickly demonstrated its usefulness in various fields of architecture learning, first of all in the research of its essence, that of the nature of space, through an analytical process of observation of cases, aiming at composition, proportion, scale, volumetry, structure, textural values, relations with context and even some intangible factors such as light or color.
