If we examine the architecture we are constructing up until now, we see a building that does not always
communicate with us on another level. When we are in the industrial age, Le Corbusier uses the
analogy of the Machine and compares the House to a machine. Now that analogy is proving itself to the
fullest. We are trying to adapt to the Smart Home, the Smart home device, the Smart Building, and the
Smart City. But do you really think the houses we are selling as Smart, are really smart enough?
The latest scientific knowledge of our times is used for explaining life.
And for analogies, in the industrial age, the brain and body are thought to be more like a machine.
But Machines do not foresee anything which has any emotion and communication skill. They have the
on/off button and level of gear speed, and that’s it.
Now we are in the computer age. We are comparing our brain and body, or cities, with the computer.
The computer is robotizing our industry, life, and constructions also. The 3D print is a good example of
But still, we lack communication.
Next, we will be passing to the Quantum Age (and using quantum computers) where we will start to use
the analogy of brain and quantum mechanics. With the help of Neuroscience and artificial intelligence,
the machines, homes, buildings, and cities will begin to work like our extension.
Information City is an understanding of interactions between the components, and making the invisible
visible, by using the extension of information architecture on a city scale, to make better new city
Responsive cities are preparing to come to the scene.
We are now living in the information age. We collect a great amount of data, which needs to translate
and transform into knowledge. When this knowledge is created, we will be passing toward responsive
cities and the
AGE OF SENSES.
When the knowledge comes forth from these smart city collections, then we will be able to understand
the pattern of cities. Infrastructural jams can be distributed from the infrastructural pattern to the city
Maybe much more dynamic, changeable, city plans we will see- where the patterns of cities will be
changed and arranged according to the necessary needs of that moment.
When this will be in a computer that will be driven by Artificial Intelligence, that kind of technology can
be used for the highest good of humanity. The entire city becomes an information organism. Data and
information that create knowledge when they come together, will lead us to responsive cities. The
information will count as one of the building components of the architecture in the near future.
Our senses are going to become an issue of science that needs to be interpreted. They will be used as a
pivot which makes for data scientists – the fortune-tellers of the next decade.
Data-Science, Neuro-Science, Artificial Intelligence will merge to conceptualize architecture. We will
understand nature much better, and what nature is with much deeper meaning. Biomimicry will drive
an understanding at more conceptual and deeper levels, which I am calling Conceptual Functioning,
meaning (“function beyond function beyond function and beyond… “).
AS ABOVE SO BELOW
Like the ventilation of a Sea Shell, it creates zero noise. Today what makes our cities and our civilization
stressful and stress-creating is because of the noise created by our computers to cars to our buildings
and factories and our airplanes.
The web silk strength of a spider, as strong as bulletproof vests, can be used in space habitats, especially
Termite mounds create small gaps in the façade to manage ventilation, but the air conditioning engines
outside our buildings is the bottom line of visual noise.
Nature is wise and achieves its evaluation in billions of years.
Nature is alive, it is omnipotent, it is what is called Anima Mundi, the “world soul”, connecting all. It
creates even the smallest amount of consciousness. It does not create dirt, it does not create noise.
Everything nature does has a purpose, and so what is our civilization?
We need to understand before we consume it.
We are at the very beginning of understanding nature.
Sense architecture will open another realm where our senses and our architecture will begin to be much
more meaningful in the coming centuries.
