Architecture is changing, complying with innovations and technological advances of designing tools and methodologies. Investigating and defining the space, whatsoever, still remains its basic task. Technology available to architects has revolutionized the management of the morphogenetic procedure through new modeling techniques, formal speculation and its enrichment with artistic intuition. It has encouraged architects to experiment on the structure and morphological attributes of natural systems and organic as well as inorganic forms and has seriously affected the correspondent spatial proposals. New concepts, introduced in the architectural discussion and contemporary design-driven research suggesting extraordinary examples of spatial arrangements, speak of a completely new architectural reality. Approached through a holistic and interdisciplinary spectrum and still confined inside Schools of architecture, this new architecture measures its future potential and chances of actual application.
