In our age comprehensive changes occur at all cultural dimensions. The speed of these changes is difficult to follow. In parallel, the concept of space and functional needs shaping architecture are changed and transformed. In this context the relation between space and time transcends its conventional patterns. While the physical configuration of architecture traditionally reflects a “static” character, in contemporary age the functions, to which this physical structure tries to respond, undergo profound transformations due to developments in information and communication technologies. Architectural envelopes and spatial configurations struggle to cope with the velocity of functional changes. In general, architecture, which formerly had a “static” character, currently recognizes “speed” and “dynamism” as fundamental concepts of its professional agenda. Office structures constitute instances where the above mentioned transformations in information and communication technologies are profoundly perceived. The functional needs faced by the office structures change. Thus it becomes harder for the spatial configurations to respond these changes.
