• Patrones en la Enseñanza de la Programación en Arquitectura: De la Hetero-­‐ Educación a la Auto-­‐Educación en Latinoamérica

      Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María (Chile), 2015-02-25)
      Teaching programming to architects, in academic and professional contexts, occurs in Latin America through self-­‐management, and focused on results, without analyzing the processes and establishing a follow-­‐up to participants, to establish patterns of application. The pointing out of these problems and the proposal of how to make said education sustainable has allowed finding variables specific to the region and to the very same tools and instruments, which are constantly evolving. At the same time, it is proposed after the analysis, that hetero-­‐education (shared learning) itself requires self-­‐education (self-­‐teaching processes) as a complementary process.

    • Reutilizando códigos como mecanismo de información y conocimiento: Programación en arquitectura

      Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (SIGraDi 2012, 2012-11)
      Differently from other regions in the Planet, since 2010, in Latin America textual programming language (Rhinoscripting) is being replaced by its visual equivalent (Grasshopper). This is a consequence of our preference for an interactive platform, and because our design problems are not as complex, so we aim to control geometrical problems or aspects belonging to an product scale instead of an architectural one. Problems emerging when creating code could be improved by modifying and reusing existing solutions as a starting point, since learning would not be centered in the object but in the process of creating it, using a suitable instrument.

    • Tecnologías disruptivas: programación y fabricación en Latinoamérica

      Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (Universidad de los Andes (Colombia), 2015-02-25)
      Since 2008 the preference for using different programming methods (Rhinoscript) had been analyzed using blogs. Searching for answers to explain the negative tendency of this year (from 48,063 to 16,332), a second repository was created (Grasshopper) featuring interactive methods and techniques. It has been discovered that of the five geographic regions analyzed Latin America is the only one that preferred the interactive interface (18% over programming). This shows that we are still keeping a strong dependency on the use of stable and safe technologies over disruptive ones that proved to be more efficient in design and fabrication.
