ABSTRACT

Lately, we are witnessing a shift in the contemporary architectural discourse involving the conversion and rehabilitation of public spaces. If we are to analyze the constant need for change that occurs within nowadays society then, our discourse would be focusing on trends – previous, present and future models/patterns. The recently discovered integrity of patterns in architecture and urbanism can be explained by the fundamental role that models have in various fields of activity, such as computer science, artificial intelligence and biology (as sets or sequences of repeated elements).
The latest digital technology has the ability to grasp and relate a large amount of information in order to generate a specific response to the complexity of our environment. Therefore, it is required the definition of a new interactive pattern of evolution, whose operators are strategy and tactics. The digital generative process offers new perspectives for the development of public space, with emphasis on the emergent and adaptive properties of the architectural form.
This paper tries to establish the main coordinates for the implementation of architectural patterns in contemporary public spaces, based on geometric representations and with a direct focus on the principles of sustainable development and their degree of compliance. Technological aspects regarding sustainable design of public are the main focus of this paper.
