This research focuses on the study of audiovisual possibilities in representing the architectural and urban space, from its nature, its formal mechanisms, and their interactions with other complementary means, understanding that the audiovisual capabilities are contained in their own language, in the scenography of special constructions of space movies, and also in architectures and cities recorded in fiction and documentaries. In this sense will be studied the possibilities of the amateur videographer, especially the student of architecture, exploring the digital audiovisual as a purveyor of knowledge as a tool for the architect projetual and its formative role of collective intelligence on buildings and urban environments with special attention to collaborative environments on the Web.
