summary Normally, academic applications of computer-aided design in building project provide a visual presentation of the final state of the house and they are not able to produce changes in the geometry following the construction process. It was developed a didactic prototype that allows the visualization of the physical changes of the construction of a common external wall. In order to obtain models, which would be able to visually simulate the geometric evolution of the construction activity, techniques of geometric modeling and virtual reality were used. The visualization of the distinct physical steps of a construction is shown as 3D models following a specific planned schedule. The model makes it possible to view the physical evolution of the work, to follow the planned construction sequence and to visualize details of the form of every component of the works. It can be manipulated interactively allowing the student/teacher to monitor the physical evolution of the work and the construction activities inherent in its progression. The developed model brings new perspectives in the teaching activity as a support to expose new curricular programs or complex sequence construction.
