This presentation, discussed the potential and efficacy of undertaking a praxis based methodology to investigate a combination of new Computer Aided Design tools to teach theoretical concepts related to space and place making. Traditionally, History and Theoretical teaching takes place in a lecture theatre with students viewing 2D images. The use of the population tool in 3D Studio Max and 123D Make were discussed in the light of making an animated film, and 3D ½ scale representation of a trilith from Stonehenge. Testing phases of the animation, trilith manufacture and student feedback were discussed. The interdisciplinary team concluded that this kinaesthetic and holistic pedagogy was appropriate in the teaching of place making and suggested further contexts of use.
