    architecture

    How can I translate the title? I know the "croquis" is a "sketch", but I'm lost with "levantamiento".

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd say basic sketching of the dwelling house's elevations. 'Basic' is totally avoidable though.

    Hope it helps.

    Me suena bien, pero el "levantamiento" es referente al croquis y no a la vivienda. Es una acción que el croquis recibe. Por lo menos así lo veo yo.

    Adding more context:

    "Levantamiento croquis básico de la vivienda

    Esta etapa consiste en el levantamiento de información base para la realización de planimetría técnica. Para ello se solicitó a cada uno de los integrantes del grupo familiar que realizase un dibujo en plano de su vivienda. Llama la atención que los resultados tenían proporciones muy similares a la realidad."

    I hope this helps to have clearer view.

    Levantamiento se refiere a tomar medidas o informes, preparar el plano o croquis.
    "Draw up the basic house floor plan."

    This thread is confusing two things. There's the levantamiento de las medidas - taking measurements - then there's the drawing up of the plans themselves. In terms of the actual exercise "Se solicitó a .. los integrantes del grupo familiar que realizase un dibujo en plano de su vivienda" I would translate this as something like "Each family member was asked to do a rough plan of their house."

    I would say:
    making a basic sketch of the house
    drawing a basic sketch of the house

    Here, I think "levantar" means "to make" or "to draw."
