Entry requirements The Curricular Unit has no entry requirements, however it assumes that students successfully attended the Architectural Design Curricular Units of the previous years.
Learning outcomes The fundamental objectives of the Project II.1 programme are the approach to general issues of Architecture and the deepening of the design, through the construction and consolidation of individual work methodologies, the understanding of the idea/concept as the essential basis of Architecture and the development of its representational practices. The understanding of Architecture will be fostered based on experimentation. If, on the one hand, the supply of tools for enriching the students' architectural culture is considered fundamental, it will be simultaneously encouraged the refusal of preconceived ideas, aiming at the development of individual architectures. The project is proposed as a moment of synthesis, integrating several factors - context, idea, space, form, function, scale, and language, based on the development of ideas/concepts through drawing, as a privileged tool of the creative act of designing.
Syllabus In the first semester, the inhabitation will be centred in the housing unit (the CASA) as the family's private space. The CASA is investigated as a receptacle of home spaces and domestic functions, dissected through different perspectives, not only the architectural but also social, cultural, and anthropological.
The complementary theme of the idea of "place" is focuses on some of its particular aspects such as the largo and the quarter. There will be an awareness of the implementation of the CASA and its urban interferences in the public space in connection with the exercise of the 2nd semester (inhabiting community typologies) based on the resolution of the intervention area, in transformation, for the definition of an inhabitation "place".

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Pedagogy will focus on three interrelated components:
- theoretical classes on themes and contents of the program, and framing of the different phases of the practical project exercises;
- practical project exercises defined in the curriculum program and in the statements for the semester, with stages of increasing level of complexity, according to the predefined objectives;
- critical monitoring classes of the different phases of practical project exercises - presentation and critical discussion in class and tutorial follow-up.
- continuous evaluation with communication of qualitative notes assigned at the end of each phase of the project and after discussion and delivery of the works;
- at the end of the semester it is made the evaluation of all the work produced, which will have a final classification measured with equity in the universe of students who developed this program.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
