The proposed study, synthesis of teaching and applied research, explores a type of connection between two fields with different communicative approaches, even if both of them deal with the skill of communicating ideas. Specifically, one refers to visual communication, carried out in different project areas through representation. The other uses words as an expressive medium to communicate through newspapers. Both areas, after the digital revolution, raised the question of finding new ways to govern the present process of change. In particular, graphics developed new appropriate instruments of content tran- smission whereas papers are following new routes (both in the printed and digital version) to catch readers’ attention. Taking this into consideration, a multidisciplinary teaching approach was adopted within the course of “Graphics and digital image processing”. It was possible to connect the two different fields imple- menting didactic laboratories whose creative experiences made during specific workshops had an immediate impact on the seminar about the newspaper graphic design.

Abstract

The proposed study, synthesis of teaching and applied research, explores a type of connection between two fields with different communicative approaches, even if both of them deal with the skill of communicating ideas. Specifically, one refers to visual communication, carried out in different project areas through representation. The other uses words as an expressive medium to communicate through newspapers. Both areas, after the digital revolution, raised the question of finding new ways to govern the present process of change. In particular, graphics developed new appropriate instruments of content tran- smission whereas papers are following new routes (both in the printed and digital version) to catch readers’ attention. Taking this into consideration, a multidisciplinary teaching approach was adopted within the course of “Graphics and digital image processing”. It was possible to connect the two different fields imple- menting didactic laboratories whose creative experiences made during specific workshops had an immediate impact on the seminar about the newspaper graphic design. In conclusion, the multidisciplinary teaching methodology generated great enthusiasm and the active participation of two-year course students. The connections and the exchanges between the con- tents of the two thematic fields turned out to be successful for an innovative teaching approach in architecture.
