  • Summary: This work aims to study the relationships and influences that are established between the conception of contemporary architecture and information and communication technologies by pointing out the profound transformations produced by them. The method of conducting this research tracks the evolution of aesthetic theories from modernity by verifying a process that leads to the aesthetics of virtual objects. In this process, the relationship between the most significant trends in architecture from the 1960s with a theory of communication based on pure-visual parameters is tested in this process. The digital code is an absolute visual code so the completely computer-produced process is subjected to a review claiming the body experience of the architecture. There is, however, some possibility of optimizing new technologies in the configuration of more human and better habitable spaces.

  • Abstract: This paper aims to study the relationships and influences that exist between the conception of contemporary architecture and information technologies pointing out its profound changes brought by that. The method to conduct this research traces the evolution of modern aesthetic theories verifying a process that leads to the aesthetics of virtual objects. In this process, is found, in critical key, the relationship between the most significant trends in architecture from the sixties with a theory of communication based on pure-visual parameters. The digital code is an absolute visual code and so the project processes completely produced by computer is submitteded to a review claiming bodily experience of architecture. One sees, however, a possibility to optimize new technologies in shaping human spaces and better living.
