Cooperative Atelier of Digital Simulation is a teaching proposal in that information technologies will be used intensively in the process of architectural design, particularly computer technologies for habitat simulation. In the first learning group, a experimental one - that should begin in the semester 2001.2, the computer will be used as an instrument for modeling, information management (spatial or not), making presentations, evaluation of alternatives and taking decisions, as well as for communication between the students’ teams and teachers of FAUFBA and, of other institutions that come to be integrating the project. The computer technologies could stand for the development of cooperative works. This paper synthesizes the proposal of creation of an optional discipline for students of Architecture and Urbanism.
