An Application of Augmented Reality in Architectural Education for Understanding Structural Behavior through Models

Claudia Susie C. RodriguesPaulo F. N. RodriguesClaudia M. L. Werner

One of the most difficult pedagogical problems in architectural education is the interface between structural and architectural design issues. As a matter of fact, the student is usually concerned with the form conception and sometimes the structural understanding does not reach a desirable level. The introduction of this subject at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (FAU/UFRJ) occurs with the study of modeling of structural systems for the simulation and testing through physical models in a qualitative analysis, which seems to be a helpful tool for the comprehension of engineering and design basic concepts. The approach discussed in this paper presents an application of augmented reality, developed in a collaboration with COPPE/UFRJ - System Engineering and Computer Science, in order to motivate and introduce the students into structure studies in a more pleasant manner and suitable to the architect's profile.
