We could explain the architecture through the relationship between Mater and Pater: Matter and pattern. But what is it that transforms matter into built systems? They are the “techno-patterns”, the patterns belonging to materiality and physical organization. The research on matter has implications in the development of patterns; relationship configurations comprising more architectural levels. In such construction of relationships, technology is not only a tool but a creative form and a part of the design process as “revelation”. Revelation in transparency, in kinetics response, in geometries that define complex surfaces or in robotic manufacturing processes. In this article we will see how the role and use of technology in the skin has been transformated as well as its relationship with its environmental context.
