To know and to make known this architectural work, which is of such value to the heritage of the city, and which is lamentably lost, the team revised documentation and bibliographical material about its historic context and its design, which has been attributed to Hernán Ruiz II, among others, the architect who crowned the Giralda. Its urban setting was studied using images from the 16th to 19th centuries (engravings, plans and photos), and this showed its privileged position and architectural characteristics. Antonio Gámiz and Pedro Barrero, the two teachers who wrote the article, state that they used "metric data from localised archaeological remains, analysing the architectural composition, considering architectural treatises from the era and photographs from the 19 century that provided reliable details."

The graphic recreations of this singular architectural work could pass from drawing to constructed reality. As the authors add, we have a virtual schematic recreation of the Puerta de Triana and a virtual model with its current urban setting which we hope will arouse interest and debate about lost heritage beyond the world of research and the university."

En esta investigación gráfica se trata de documentar, analizar y reconstruir la desaparecida Puerta de Triana en Sevilla. Para ello se revisan datos sobre su contexto histórico y su autoría, y se analizan imágenes de los siglos xvi al xix (vistas urbanas, planos y fotos) que reflejan su privilegiado entorno y rasgos arquitectónicos. Para la reconstrucción virtual se utilizan datos métricos de vestigios arqueológicos localizados, analizando la composición arquitectónica, considerando tratados de arquitectura de la época y fotografías del siglo xix que aportan fiables detalles. De este modo se pretende subrayar la  importancia de las imágenes para conocer y dar a conocer una pieza arquitectónica y urbana de gran valor patrimonial que desapareció en el siglo xix, ahora recreada gracias a la disciplina gráfica.
