Abstract

The aim of this paper is to highlight some of the results of the interdisciplinary work carried out by the authors in the School of Architecture of Roma Tre University which unifies research and didactics showing a contemporary approach to the disciplines of drawing and mathematics. They conduct a course to develop a methodology of study that foresees three aspects: the construction of a mathematical drawing machine, the understanding of the analytic representations of the curve that the machine tracks, the consultation of historical sources. Case studies extracted from treatises on history of architecture, mainly from the nineteenth century, can show how geometrical issues have been resolved over time and interpteted in dfferent ways. The goal is to reinforce in students the awareness of the relationship between physical objects, their representation, and the mathematical theory underlying, through the study of historical cases.
