transArchitecture, architecture beyond architecture, is
an architecture of heretofore invisible scaffolds. It has a twofold
character: within cyberspace is exists as liquid architecture that is
transmitted across the global information networks; within physical
space it exists as an invisible electronic double superimposed on our
The term transArchitectures (Marcos Novak) stems from a
discussion between architects and designers. Influenced
by their experience with computer technology during the
design process they are developing new concepts of time,
space, shape, structure, construction, etc. It is about
simultaneously practising architecture and media, combining
design and machine, and about the shift from "form and space"
to "process and field". These concepts and designs have
been discussed at length at two previous transArchitectures
conferences held in Paris in 1996 and 1997. tA02/03 consisted
of an exhibition of large prints and videos at the Nederlands
Architectuurinstituut, part of the DEAF98 festival.
