title Authoring Tools for KOC - Concepts and Pedagogical Use
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 8 - no. 2, 183-200
summary One of the main problems of teachers aiming to teach the construction techniques used in to build a building is the lack of practical examples to show to their students. In order to be useful, these examples must come from real projects or even better the teachers may take their students to constructions sites, but this latter option is not always available and may be dangerous. To deal with this problem, Los Andes University has committed the construction of a knowledge repository containing information gathered from real projects and semantically described, in order to provide easy access to its content and in the language of people of construction. This project is called KOC, standing for Knowledge Objects of Construction, which uses an ontology to describe semantically the data contained in the repository. Being the pedagogical objective of the project, it is important to provide the teachers with additional tools to generate new knowledge objects, based on existing knowledge objects in the repository. This paper presents three composition tools for KOC: a complex objects composer issued from structured searches, a constructive processes composer and a case study composer, all of them aiming the improvement of learning quality in the technical area of building construction at the architecture and engineering schools. The paper also shows some examples of knowledge objects and how KOC is been used in the courses of the Architecture Department of Los Andes.

summary The main purpose of the presentation has a triple value: the architectural and urban heritage of the city of Santiago, Chile; the panorama as means of representation; and to enhance the Santa Lucia hill, as a place that has formed part of the collective memory of its habitants, since its foundation.

title La toma de decisiones en cursos del área técnica de arquitectura con herramientas tecnológicas basadas en el conocimiento [Decision - making in architecture technical areas, using knowledge based tools]
source SIGraDi 2010_Proceedings of the 14th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, pp. Bogotá, Colombia, November 17-19, 2010, pp. 312-315
summary Specialists and educators have proven the effectiveness of using case studies as a learning support method. In the teaching of architectural techniques some technologically - based tools have been developed that enable students to accumulate technical data from studied cases. Nevertheless, this way of presenting case studies to students has restricted their potential because it promotes design fixation, typification, and functional incoherence. A complementary TIC - based tool for case studies is presented here, which allows the relation of technical data to the dynamic situations that produce them. This new tool is designed to increase students´ analysis and design capacities, and turns accumulative technical data systems into integral technological tools for teaching architectural techniques.

title Conservación digital de las prácticas constructivas utilizando el sistema KOC. Estudio de caso: Edificio Mario Laserna [Digital preservation of building practices, using the KOC system. Case study: Mario Laserna building]
source SIGraDi 2010_Proceedings of the 14th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, pp. Bogotá, Colombia, November 17-19, 2010, pp. 362-365
summary Around the middle of the 20th century, construction techniques in Colombia displayed important technical advances, but because there was a lack of documentation strategies most of this knowledge was lost. However, in 2008 the Mario Laserna building at Universidad de los Andes, Bogota, received the XVII International Cemex Building Award for its contribution to the development of construction technology using concrete. Considering the problem of recording the lessons learned from this experience, this paper demonstrates how to carry out the digital preservation of technical knowledge in the field of construction by means of the Knowledge Objects of Construction (KOC) system, specifically the construction process for a concrete beam.
