summary 
This paper aims to discuss the possible contributions that parametric modeling environments can bring to descriptive geometry teaching process in architecture courses. The paper shows a method where models developed in Grasshopper are used to illustrate how is possible to combine computing concepts, shape generation and design references during descriptive geometry classes. In this work is used as design precedent, solutions created by the Mexican architect and mathematician Felix Candela. His concrete shells developed from hyperbolic paraboloids are recognized as important references in architecture. As was said, during the research was developed a set of models in Grasshopper. This models were created in a way to show to the students the concepts required to build an hyperbolic paraboloid.
