Abstract
The papers presents some relevant examples of projects developed in Uruguay during the last 15 years, of membranes built within the country and abroad. It is discussed the interaction between technological and constructive learning, market needs, the various architectural programs, or specific uses, and how learning is combined with the pursuit of collaborative teamwork, the resolution problems, and the choice of appropriate materials. It is interesting to realize what can be accomplished with nontraditional materials, which sometimes allows the finding of new expressions, and sometimes not. The paper will also present the current teaching practices at the Faculty of Architecture of UdelaR.
