Conference paper


We have been introducing during last years a new procedure using photography as a tool to improve the traditional teaching methods of manual design. We used it as a support for drawing the plans and as a background for the perspectives. Using two different focal lengths our students get two spaces; one introduces us into the space we really feel and the other represent the space we are able to remember. The student has to make a final presentation on a single support, which summarizes his work. It has to include his sketches and the photographic support used by him.
