ABSTRACT

The paper deals with the modernization and adaptation to the new features of existing objects in the urban fabric. In the twenty-first century the digital design tools, which are interfaced with the production of computer technology, have opened the new opportunities that not only are shaping the architectural objects, but also interferencing in the buildings’ structures. The selected objects are examined, which have been implemented in the European cities centers, and the new design approaches, which are taken to induce the new strong interactive effects, are indicated. The analyzed objects are: the Extention of German Historical Museum (1997–2004) in Berlin, the Weltstadthaus (2003–2005) in Cologne, the King Cross Station (2005–2012) in London, the Palazzo Unione Militare (2010–2013) in Rome, the headquarters of the Pathé Foundation (2006–2014) in Paris. Each of the enumerated examples shows a diverse approach to designing, and what combines them is the use of the digital tools especially the topological ones in the constructing the parametric forms, which reflect the age of digital technologies and the information society.
