  • Summary: The symbiosis of information and communication technologies (ICT) and architecture has led to the birth of new building types, as well as adherence to them of spaces not massive but of great importance in the order of the territory. These non-technological places have led to the development of historical events, although they often go unnoticed. Radio space, WIFI, air and sea traffic control space,… etc., alterthe maps of the first nature modeling hidden landscapes and architectures that respond to technological development. This article seeks a critical historical collection of buildings that have arisen in the light of optical, electrical, electronic transfer

    and digital information, from primitive castrens infrastructures to ‘augmented’ architectures in which the overlap of the digital layer with the built physical environment defines a new mediating architecture.

  • Keywords: Architecture, technology, information, communication, mediation and ICT.
  • Abstract: The symbiosis between information & communication technologies (ICT) and architecture has led to the birth of new building types, as well as the eventual adherence of these to not bulky areas, but high relevance in the order of the territory. These technological non-places have scheduled the course of historical events, although they have been often unnotated. Radio space,WIFI space, air and maritime traffic control space,… etc., all have altered the First Nature cartography modeling hidden landscapes and architectures that respond to technological development. This paper traces critical historic survey on buildings that aroused under the constraints of optical, electrical, electronic and digital information transfers, from primitive military infrastructures to the ‘augmented’ architectures in which the overlap of digital and physical environment defines a new mediating architecture.
