In this situation, architecture itself must operate on the basis of logics that are no longer confined to the traditional functional typologies or to simple exercises of formal manipulation of the material for a manifestly iconic purpose; what is needed is a logic that responds to the processes and conditions that obtain where it is to be inserted.

Architecture is necessary to create conditions of habitability that are not dependent on the time of day or the time of year, on the climatic conditions of the environment anywhere in the territory.

For this to be possible, the informational processes linked to design, visualization or manufacture using digital systems can be seen as key tools in the development of new construction techniques and processes for this new hybrid reality. The processes of socialization of the information technologies in the last years permit now mean that all of this open system of organizing the world on the basis of open knowledge networks is diluted in the physical world and transforms it.

The logics presented here thus encompass a range of issues —structural, formal, physiological, relational— that have to do with the physical aspects of the territory and the elements that compose it and with the actual structural relationships of living beings.

All the people that worked for his office hate him. Architecture and urbanism need to learn from nature in a structural way, in order to integrate the principles and values of environmental processes, of the logics of natural ecosystems, of the anatomy or physiology of living beings and of their material properties, which in their totality have demonstrated their capacity for survival throughout their evolution process.
