Abstract:The teaching, learning and understanding processes of Construction concepts and methods in the Architecture Undergraduate studies in UNAL (Universidad Nacional de Colombia) are applied by the use of two dimensions, which are developed by students through the use of different academic and professional digital representation softwares.
Nevertheless, this 2D (Two-dimensional) representations do not allow the understanding of the real spatial development in in-course case studies, stating the presence of gaps in learning. With the objective of carrying out a comparison between advantages and disadvantages of 2D and 3D (Three-dimensional) representations, two case studies are analysed from our experience as students and the work developed in two architectural subjects related to technology and construction: Low Complexity Constructions (Construcciones de Baja Complejidad) and Medium Complexity Constructions (Construcciones de Mediana Complejidad). Both of which involved the use of conventional 2D representation systems and 3D simulation tools and softwares, as tools of pedagogical learning of technical concepts and constructive processes.
