Abstract

The Research and Documentation Centre in Technology, Architecture and Town in Developing Countries (CRD-PVS) at Politecnico di Torino promotes research addressing habitat improvement under conditions that can be regarded as borderline in terms of climate or social emergence. It coordinates the post-graduate course in Habitat, Technology and Development, which trains architects and engineers to be capable of working with an integrated approach to design in different cultural, political and economic settings and identifying all available resources. Starting in academic year 2006/07, thanks to a framework agreement with the Municipality of Osasco (San Paolo, Brazil), the CRD-PVS organizes design workshops as part of the post-graduate course.
