As a result, both Projective and Descriptive Geometry are disappearing from the architectural curricula, and the students only tend to use Geometry by trying and retrying through the menu of options displayed on their softwares, instead of going back to the disciplinary foundations. Quite paradoxically, the young generations are ending up “using” geometry without “knowing” it, what is, on my opinion, so paradoxical as using a word processor without knowing a language. (...).
