Design of buildings within the discrete space (2/3)

Applying the same changes to a spatial scheme we get a model of a controllable space. Can we compare this model with an objective reality? The space around us is filled with matter. In its turn, matter consists of ultimate particles {the simplest structural elements of matter which during the contemporary development level of physics do not have to be considered as a combination of other particles, according to Dictionary of Natural Sciences}. These elements have specific characteristics. Having learned how to change them, we will be able to create controllable space, which follow not the decrees of nature but invented laws.
In case if devices able to read and set the characteristics of the ultimate particles are invented, there will be no need to transfer objects in space. If a specific object is needed on the given place, it is possible to generate it by changing the characteristics of the air particles instead of moving the object physically from one position to another. And we can do the same to eliminate a specific object from the given area. It is possible to change its characteristics and turn the object into air.

Architectural studio in the teleportation era

This method of production not only differs from an existing one and creates new opportunities, but also changes a person itself, his or hers way of life and way of thinking. Valuable properties loose their meaning as they can be generated from air. Resources necessary for this process are generated as well. And a person has more time and possibilities for imagination and art.
The task of space organizing is still an architect’s work. But a new architect differs from a usual one. He doesn’t work with builders because there are no builders. He doesn’t think about the organization of construction and assembling because a building is no longer erected but generated. He doesn’t order any standard elements from a factory because they are not needed, and a building is a solid piece of material with given qualities, the material which can even not exist in nature.
Everything needed to generate a new building is:
1. its detailed digital three-dimensional model (elaborating of which is the final aim of the projecting process) that is to be the exact copy of the desired result set over the digital three-dimensional model of the building site.
2. a scanning device necessary to scan the building site for the purpose of virtual combination of the digital three-dimensional model and the real site to ensure correct placement of the generated building.
3. software to calculate the influence on an ultimate particle for conversion of its structure.
4. a generative device.

The main tasks of an architect belong to a qualitatively different level owing to the attraction a wide range of specialists in various spheres {ecologists, sociologists, psychologists, philosophers, culture experts etc.} to the process of projecting. They are able to answer the questions out of the sphere of competence of an architect owing to a profound usage of computer technologies at every stage of designing, including the analysis of decisions. All of that will let us escape the necessity of any coordinative body.

Main innovations in the structure of architectural studio:
1. Analytical centre. It participates on every stage of projection: analysis of initial data, selection of an optimal variant, and analysis of the decisions taken.
2. The centre for elaboration of a detailed digital three-dimensional model.
3. The centre for testing and demonstration of elements or a construction fully.

There are two methods of spatial thinking: form-building which deals with three-dimensional objects and space-building which works with the environment of these objects.
It seems that thinking with the help of space is more correct because we can exist only in it and it is impossible to appear inside an object (for instance, inside a concrete wall). But today the leading way of thinking is a form-building one. Probably, it is caused by the fact that space is colourless while form is gay with colours; consequently, it attracts more attention.
But if consider form and space as integral matter with different density of particles, there is a new way of reflection that works with form and space as with a single whole.
