Summary/Abstract: Architectural creative process nowadays relies on methods and tools borrowed from various fields of science. At the same time, the design process is significantly influenced by the clash of generations between respective architects. The treatise is based on an analysis of works by KOPA practice in its consequent stages, with following titles: 1987 – 1997: PERSONALIST ARCHITECTURE The essence of architecture rests in a human The essence in front of a mirror Extropy as an essence 1997 – 2007: SPOT ARCHITECTURE The essence of architecture rests in the matter The essence in a mirror Philanthropy as an essence 2007: HEAP ARCHITECTURE The essence of architecture rests in between The essence behind a mirror Entropy as an essence CHAPTER 1 PERSONALISM VERSUS PROJECTIVE PRACTICES A period under the banner “Schisms today, isms tomorrow” produced quite a few enigmatic icons in the process of aggregation and interaction of the worlds of orgware, hardware and software through a method of bigamous decision-making. Personalist search for inspiration and answers within one’s own conscience which is typical of the end of the 20th century is the opposite of search within the virtual network or the environment or the course of life. The cognizance, the individual experience and the order are being exchanged for chaos, a “chatroom” experience or a Wikipedia pattern. The truth as an experience is being replaced by the truth quantified by the number of clicks. Artistic intuition is nowadays superceded by the research and the work with hypotheses. The focus is on the simulation procedures. NON-LINEAR DYNAMISM – by its simulation utilizing the chaos theory, it allows for tracking the whole behaviour pattern of a house. Nonlinear dynamic systems shape the environment through the presence of an experimental noise. LIFE SIMULATORS redefine anew the architectural memory barriers. A number of simulated modeling elements of life-like imitations inhabiting the virtual spaces help to simulate the future real life within them. EVOLUTIONARY ALGORITHMS govern the population cluster or structures by the rules of selection while defining the aptitude of particular details of the architecture as a complex phenomenon of the space. ARTIFICIAL LIFE simulated by dynamic cellular agents allows for research of both real and mock life, in obscure dimensions of the space. BIOMORPHISM forms the new bio-matrix of a body with varying scale of the scrutinized subject. The character of the environment, condensed by the intensity of knowledge, is changing the mode of its ‘resonance membranes’ represented the physical presence and ideas of a man...
