People meet in architecture is a topic that could include the space transformation from the user point of view, but also semantics of space changed according to usage manners. The future of our profession, considering space in perspective, is Experimental Architecture. Concerning people in perspective and most of all their needs, science and technology are the ones that experiment new materials. A new perspective on space evolution will be created by taking into consideration new materials present in the architectural business of enveloping spaces. Contemporary ways of enveloping spaces give us a perspective on the future in architecture. Current public spaces are more or less in a moment of change. The future public space will be shaped by the incursion of virtual conditioning along with new public life styles. Turning a city into a knowledge/science center with the latest technology can be possible once cultural initiatives are more present in daily activities as well as implementing in building Architecture new ways of covering space through a mediation process between private and public spaces.
