title Digital Design Curriculum: Developments in Latin America – A Field Report

summary The introduction of early computer graphics procedures in the Architectural and Design fields in Latin America has been a complex and hard task due to different motives that can be summarized as educational prejudices, political instability and financial problems. The paper aims to summarize the origin of the “system approach” view in the region based in experiences of some leading institutions nowadays. A chronological development of the present curricular systems in some Faculties of Architecture and Design will also be included. It must be considered that the great majority of public universities in Latin America are free of charge for the students.
