Abstract

(Incipit) The dialogue between “Scientific” and “Professional” worlds will be one of the most challenging tasks in the future, with refer to Geometry and Graphics. About Geometry, it seems that it has never found a good location in the architectural curricula. In the analogue era, it was considered too much “scientific” and “difficult, while in the digital era it is often considered as something “historical”, even “too humanistic”, because of the big amount of digital modelers nowadays available. 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. (...).
