Cyberspace is an electronic extension of this cognitive space. Designers of virtual environments already
know the power these spaces have on the imagination. Computers are no longer just tools for projecting
buildings. They change the very substance of design. Cyberspace is itself a subject for design. With
computers architects can design space both for physical and non-physical media. A conscious integration of
cognitive and physical space in architecture can affect construction and maintenance costs, and the impact
on natural and urban environments.
This paper is about the convergence of physical and electronic space and its potential effects on
architecture. The first part of the paper will define cognitive space and its relationship to cyberspace. The
second part will relate cyberspace to the production of architecture. Finally, a recent project done at the
University of Michigan Graduate School of Architecture will illustrate the integration of physical and
Together these features offer a broader horizon to architectural design. New source of inspiration can
be found in virtual reality that makes visible what does not really exist, permitting design to suggest itself
with its primordial image. We mean a kind of architectural imprint, where the first three-dimensional lines
suggest in some way the designer with their shape, and encourage the definition process.
Through the visualisation of some images, it is possible to show the modifications of language and style,
to examine the transformation modalities of the design process and to propose an essay of the new
methods to communicate architecture.
