Together with the highlighting of the changing role of the architect in the transformation’s project, the current debate about architectural programs includes the difference between providing architectural education and to form practicing architects.

Providing architectural education means to develop skills and knowledge related to architectural cultures, such as spatial skills, technical and structural knowledge, social and political awareness, and team-working abilities; these skills are required and appreciated in many others fields related or not with the architectural and building sectors. On the other hand, to form practicing architects means to look closely at the skills and knowledge required by the building sector, specifically focusing on technical and management skills, being less concerned by the cultural dimension, critical spirit, and social engagement.

This yearbook shows the challenge undertaken by the Politecnico to form high-level practicing architects together with socially responsible and critical thinking versatile designers (in the broader sense of the term).

The School of Architecture of the Politecnico di Torino is growing, open, interdisciplinary school, part of a global research university focused on design in all technical fields. Established in 1931 – but with a background that can be traced back to the Royal Technical School for Engineers founded in 1859 – it is one of the oldest architecture schools of Italy.

After a 3-year-long broad Bachelor program in Architecture, whose scope is to provide a general understanding of architecture, building techniques, urban forms and societies, environmental challenges, and to develop solid drawing and design skills, stu­dents can join one of the three 2-year Master programs on Heritage preservation and Enhancement, Sustainable Design or Construc­tion City.

All programs are offered in Italian and English, except for Architecture Heritage preservation and Enhancement, in which students accede in Italian to one of the world’s richest heritage cultures.
