This pedagogical action is a practical activity of the course "Construcão I" of the Bachelor of Architecture and Urbanism degree (night shift course). The activity introduces the study of construction designs and details of Brazilian architecture works. It is an in-depth study of the works and their respective building designs using diverse research tools, such as: the plans interpretation; interviews with the architects; research on building materials manufacturers' websites; redrawing and modeling of building in 3D software based on the details and photographs of the works; 1:1 scale modeling of part of the building; and an exhibition of panels and models containing analysis of the works in which construction is the motto. We seek an integration between the teaching of building construction and the teaching of architectural design, something necessary, but difficult to implement in Brazilian publics architecture schools due to the tradition of teaching construction technology content as isolated courses. The interpretation, redrawing and 3D modeling phase takes place in the computer lab under the supervision of the professor. Redrawing and modeling of building solutions are part of an research process in which a puzzle is assembled. When building models, learning by discovery is revealed in the confrontation of different understandings, in the comprehension of the characteristics of the studied materials, in the geometry of the design and its construction systems.
