Digital Transformation

Digital transformation in Industry 4.0 seen through architectural point of view describes the "smart factory" as the "Internet of Spaces". Compared to IoT (Internet of Things), it conceptualizes the interconnected intelligent spaces which are adaptable to the user in any possible way. The building block of such environments is Information. There are three major areas of such concept, defining what and how we create, what is our organizational structure and how we collaborate, and what is our new working environment. These are Virtual Prototype, Virtual Enterprise, and Virtual Environment.

Interconnected Spaces

Spaces of the future are smart environments responsive to the User. To design these spaces holistic approach and trans-disciplinary expert team are needed.

Spatial Concept

Added value is created through elements of ambient intelligence. The smart environment acts as a computer and reacts upon the User on-demand.

User Experience

Space is defined through user experience rather than pre-defined and determined functions. Form follows feedback.

Future Workplace

As the production process gets even more automated and computerized the new worker of the future is the knowledge worker.
