Abstract
We are living in a fast track world, where technology increasingly dictates our way of life. With technology progressing faster than ever and infiltrating our jobs and homes, we are forced to adapt to this way of life in order to keep up with out ever-changing world. Cities are experiencing changes as well. Buildings are becoming obsolete while creating great strain on the cities. In the long term, we need to allow our cities to adapt and change with us. Otherwise, their inability to adapt and be flexible to our changing needs will cause them to become ruins.

We are in need for flexible spaces that not only serve us, but also technology yet to come. Cities are in demand for buildings that withstand a metamorphosis. It is our duty to recognize usable buildings and their architectural contribution in order to increase their life span.

Architecture affects us. It affects our moods and lifts our spirit, ultimately contributing to our well-being. Consequently, spatial quality is a very importantfactor. Light and shadows, scale, vertical and horizontal movement, sound control, temperature and color influence the quality of a space. Space is transformed by means of layers, material finishes, and movement sequences to name a few. fter all, is not the act of transforming something, also discovering that which was always there?
