Based on the teachers' experience with the Introduction to Architecture Workshop in Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María, developed in Valparaíso, Chile between 2001 and 2014, this article reflects on certain pedagogical elements considered key for students who are beginning their university training as architects. First of all, background information is provided on the course Introduction to Architecture. Then, the concept of group workshop (cuerpo taller) is introduced, which stresses the need to promote educational experiences based on which students can become active players of their own learning process, being able to quickly and creatively respond to a dynamic, demanding and changing environment. Subsequently, the components of the 'cuerpo taller' are discussed separately, including: learning subject; teachers; learning environment; and time. Finally, there are reflections on the implications of this pedagogical proposal to build individual autonomy and creativity in a group context.
