What Mario Carpo defines as “the second digital turn” (Carpo 2017) represents for architecture an irreversible process meant to modify many consolidated rules in the professional practice. Without upgrading his methods and points of view, education in architecture turns out to be inappropriate for future scenarios, both in terms of content and methods.
In this regard, in 2018 the School of Architecture and Design “Eduardo Vittoria” (SAAD) of the University of Camerino launched an experimental educational programme focused on: a) “digital fabrication” as a building strategy; b) the SAAD-Lab#Prototype (the SAAD fab-lab) as fulcrum of an innovative workshop in the field of building construction. The paper presents the result of the 2018/19 workshop concerning a temporary settlement for students made with customised building systems.
