First course on “Strategies and Tools for Advanced Building Envelopes Design towards Resilient Construction”
The first course on “STRATEGIES AND TOOLS FOR ADVANCED BUILDING ENVELOPES DESIGN TOWARDS RESILIENT CONSTRUCTIONS“ (doctoral program in Architecture, Built environment and Construction engineering – ABC PhD Politecnico di Milano) was successfully completed on February 2, 2022.
The course, which was attended by 9 PhD students, focused on the building envelopes resistance to extreme wind events and the flying debris effects on building façades. The course combined theoretical lectures and a workshop, where students worked on an assigned case study, identifying specific strategies to prevent wind-induced damages and the flying debris phenomenon to occur.
Lecturers: Enrico S. Mazzucchelli (Politecnico di Milano), Paolo Rigone (Politecnico di Milano), Angelo Lucchini (Politecnico di Milano), Dario Trabucco (IUAV Venezia), Martino Milardi (Università degli Studi Mediterranea di Reggio Calabria).
