Recent studies in contemporary architecture have developed a variety of parameters regarding the information paradigm which have consequently brought different results and techniques to the process of architectural design.
Thus, the emergence of an ecological thinking environment and its involvement in scientific matters has determined links moving beyond the conventional references that rely on information. The study is based on the assumption that Information Theory leads into a bidirectional model which is based on interaction. According to it, we can emphasize the presence of the human body in both the architectural creation process and the use of architectural space. The aim of this study is consequently an evaluation of how this corporeal view related to the human body, can be organized and interlinked in the process of architectural design. My hypothesis relies on the interactive process between the
information paradigm and the ecological one. The integration of this corporeal view influences the whole process of architectural design, improving abilities and knowledge.
