KEY FACTORS IN DRAWING UP A BUILDING

When we draw up a building we are expressing a personal way of approach men to architecture. We are then, really, interpreting the building. For doing this, we must do a detailed study of the object, the process and we must analyse all the parts of the construction. In this way we will understand all the structure.

We must try to balance the illusion of a technological power, with the respect by the graphs means of manuals techniques. This is the only way of using the technology that we have.

In this communication we will try to explain the utility of the programs of virtual simulation and its application in the study of the buildings. Through virtual simulations, it is possible to raise buildings, that have been constructed and buildings that are in project to be constructed. Models of buildings that have not been constructed can be created, we can have strolls by the interior of the buildings, we can analyze the architectonic work of the great architects,… etc.

Our aim is the analysis of the instruments that, at this moment, are being used in drawing up building. The basic tools of CAD programs, such as Autocad, 3D Studio and similar programs, later to see their application in the infográfic work development of different architecture works.

Drawing by computer is widely used in the architect community, more and more the architects’ studio and ateliers demand the professional who collaborates in the tasks of production and drawing of the architectonic planes, with more knowledge in the computer drawing. Lately the introduction of the presentations in three dimensions and multimedia causes the professional to get knowledges on these means and their use.

The virtual pads introduce a fundamental concept for the compression of the constructions. But a problem exists, that is to access to the virtual graphical representation without the necessary maturity in the field of the Architectonic Presentation. It is for that reason that seems so important for us to make an analysis of the drawing up a building and its problems
