One of the main problems and difficulties for architectural students in order to be able to materialize projects, is connecting ideas and reality. Up to this moment, designs do not specify techniques and materials clearly. But at one point of the project, it is required to make such decisions. Then, it is when hand drawing ability becomes important due to its speed in order to show quickly the different shifts, solutions, as well as to look into the possibilities of carrying out the procedures.

Shifts can be taught and can be learnt. But it is not an easy task. Learning to construct and design what will be built means learning to connect parts, functions and processes of the constructive reality through the use of materials, elements and construction systems with the purpose of materialising the idea that all architectonic project comprises. To this end, the analysis of each construction detail must be undertaken with the materials and elements required for its solution. Furthermore, it requires to take into account the different architectonic and constructive situations involved.
Through hand drawing, we can easily and quickly explain the main aspects of technical construction, reflecting meanwhile in the process from idea to reality. This is a good methodology to teach construction and, what is best, it is a fantastic way to learn construction.

When we hand draw, we can see, understand, assimilate, imagine, and, overall, express ourselves, for building, which is our final purpose. Hand drawing is how we reveal the thoughts, as well as it is an essential part of construction. Because of this, hand drawing makes exploration, the evolution process and the valuation of decisions much easier.

Therefore, sketches, which are not final drawings, are used to analyse ideas and concepts, deeply stimulating perception and creation.
Obviously, when we refers to hand made drawings, this is not a romantic recognition. It is the basis for technological drawing, but overall it is the present and the future because we draw to think, imagine, describe, show, learn, teach, build and, finally, to make architecture.
