Abstract

Architects represent volumes on a bidimensional surface, by using geometrical rules so that later they can build the reality in three dimensions. Thus, Descriptive Geometry taught to the future architects must provide basic knowledge regarding the creation of space, forms and methods by which they can be represented. With the new space viewing methods in computerized era, which allows incontestably complex connections in an entirely new manner makes us ask the question ”is geometrical thinking still necessary?“ This work analyses the ways in which descriptive geometry, by geometrical transformations allows the students architects the realization of volumes and architectural spaces, especially the role it plays in the
development of spatial thinking.
