dc.description.abstract Living in the age of scientific, technological and digital revolution changes our attitude towards information. It is inevitable to start approaching information not only as a product of fashionable digital media behavior, but also as a particular accumulation of facts and activities, transferable bits of matter, which influence our environment. Architecture not only exerts spatial influence on our environment, but also it structures its processes. Acting as such, architecture is involved into direct representation of informational flows via organizing spatial systems. Therefore, in the digital era, design gets more related to transforming different informational modes into spatial structures. Transformations of information provide rich possibilities for conceptualizing space; such transformations could be achieved by different methodologies. This paper uses the concept of space in contemporary physics, namely the self-organizational behavior of the spacetime framework, in order to explore various ways of coding information in design. Analyzing String theory and its follower M – theory, the research derives a method for spatial organization of cause-and-effect activities resulting in a unified approach towards design methodology. This paper explores the concept of movement in the space-time framework, namely the movement in various dimensions and in non-Euclidean geometry, in order to develop a system for achieving a particular design control over informational activities. Using the topology of spacetime in String heory and M-theory, a topology produced as an outcome from that particular movement behavior, the research proposes a way to handle an informational status in the environment spatially. Such a design approach, becoming more and more necessary in the age of the digital, opens room not only for mere spatial variations, but also for a direction towards new design morphology; a morphology in which architecture obtains new spatial value, reaching beyond the label of visionary design en_US
