Course: Off-Site Technologies for Architecture
Location: Bologna, Italy
Course dates: November 2023 to February 2024
Application deadline: 15 September 2023

Manni Group and YACademy's Off-Site Technologies for Architecture course collects the most relevant international experience in the field and prepares students with design knowledge to understand and enhance the memory of historical architectures.

The course offers three scholarships with full coverage of the enrollment cost for the most deserving students. It is also possible to participate in the courses remotely.

With a frequency of three days per week for a duration of two months, Off-Site Technologies for Architecture hosts several frontal teaching modules and numerous interventions by well-known professionals working at world-renowned companies, including Paolo Matteuzzi from Zaha Hadid Architects, Nicola Scaranaro from Foster + Partners, Frans Van Vuure from UNStudio, and Arne Emerson from Morphosis.

The course's workshop will be carried out in collaboration with Foster + Partners, and it will focus on the design of sustainable, replicable housing modules that can be combined to meet the significant housing demand of emerging economies or support temporary functions in emergency contexts.

In addition, Manni Group and YACademy offer its students the opportunity to participate in the process of producing their own ideas.

Thus, the students will gain practical experience on construction sites and, above all, the authorship of projects built for excellent commissions, destined for a major media echo and capable of defining a turning point in their professional career.

To conclude the course, each student will carry out a period of collaboration with one of YACademy's partner firms.

Such collaboration will have a minimum duration of two months and guaranteed remuneration consistently with regulatory requirements.

The course is organised by Manni Group, sponsored by Rockwool and patronised by ADI, FPA and UNICMI. For more information, contact [email protected]
