[ISEA97] Paper: Peter Anders – Cybrids: Integrating Cognitive and Physical Space in Architecture


I have studied the impact of information technology on architecture. My work has addressed cyberspace as a deep spatial environment affected by social, organizational and aesthetic issues … not unlike architectural spaces. However, comparisons between physical and cyberspaces must account for their differences.

Four issues relate physical space to cyberspace:

1. Parity between physical and cyberspace via cognitive space

2. The resultant transformation of physical architecture

3. The anomalities of translating the spatial metaphor to 3D environments;

4. The possibility of creating hybrid schemes – cybrids – that exist both in physical and cyberspaces.
