Hi Heli,

Firstly I don't mean to be overly critical, but there are some major flaws in your post. So the best piece of advice I can give is to sit back and seriosuly analyse what you have written. Then I 'd persoanl define what I want to find out. Currently you say you want ideas, but have already made some rash defintions and presumptions eg "Technology applied to architecture has developed many different kind of spaces, some of them with no dimensions at all:virtual spaces inside a shell"

No dimensions? But you just said "I say that not only time, but communication and interaction"

Subsequently you need to define what space is firstly and what each xyz really means, and can a sapce exist in memory or virtual worlds? or both? Personally the fourth dimension being peoples memory is far more interesting than studying virtual realms?

If you continue to be concerned with time then you need to analyse spaces during different time frames, and how users are positioned and experience that space, before during and after. For example, your currently sitting at a computer, but you can remember what your local park looks like, hence does this space exist? Your not currently there, but you can still experience many delicate details that your memory has stored.

If you want to take the fourth dim as the virtual then you need to define how you experience the sapce and at what limit can it be define into architecture? Or at what level can it not be architecture?

hope this helps.........
