summary This research work deals with the changes of paradigms as treated by architecture. These changes result from the loss of values of ontological dimensions accepted so far. The analysis addresses the understanding of these changes pushing our logic towards an attempt to apprehend the new dynamics and parameters that have invaded our disciplinary field. In the design process, different logical projections derived from a combination of traditional representational methods and updated technical resources (analogic and digital) have been tried. Technical resources have always conditioned the ways of conceiving, practicing and experiencing art and architecture, it is on this basis that we seek to find out how different modeling techniques have modified the relationship between reality and its representations. Thus the central topic of our thesis is "transfer from the analogic to the digital". We have developed a chronological analysis of the evolution of images and we have seen how each period depends on the main material vector of transmission, which modifies the perception of space and time. Within this iconographic analysis, we reflected on which the rules that connect architecture and the different ways of representation and production are and we were able to show how new technological resources condition the way we conceive architecture today. In our opinion, the best way to understand the nature of digital means is the implementation of a methodology that ranges between direct and critical dialogue and manual and digital ways of production. The designed was applied on a "centre of contemporary art". This allowed experimentation in the treatment of general and particular issues arising from the process of means interaction.
