Digital culture remains of the most interesting topics of the moment. The last three decades, shows how is evolved a complicated relation between architecture and digital technologies, through an absolute scepticism to moments of enthusiasm. The new rhetoric of digital technologies tents to embrace fundamental concepts of architecture, by theorizing another time as in the modern tradition, correlations as form-space-structure. The objective of this paper is to verify the hypothesis which admits that digital culture is changing the relations between space-form and tectonics. Now the architectural form is much more independent from geometrical constraints and materiality. In the ambiguous contemporaneity, on the symbioses between spirit and the digital, Toyo Ito’s outcome seems to be the one of the most convincing. This paper tents to analyse the Ito’s work in the perspective of the new poetics and metaphors deriving from a liberated architecture from materiality. This understanding is made through a comparison between several authors as Greg Lynn or Patrik Schumacher that also have implemented in their work the digital technologies but in different dimensions.
