Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Albanian house was designed in 1982 and takes its name from the one who commissioned theproject from the studio of Culotta and Leone. The achievements of the study were studied, focusingin particular on the various projects related to single-family houses.Given the technological characteristics of the project, an analysis of the international context wasalso necessary, in particular the suggestions of the shingle style cottages were studied.In addition, the construction technology underlying the project, or the balloon frame, typical of theUS context, was also studied.The project shows great attention to the exhibition, and to the relationship between inside andoutside. The whole project is in perfect harmony with the context in which it fits.Vectorization of drawings, applications of the 3D model, photo insertion and technological analysiswhich allowed a sufficient level of knowledge of the architectural project.However, by analyzing the project drawings and dwelling on the details, several issues emergedwhich, certainly due to the absence of an executive phase of the design, remained unexplored.
