everything gets reality in mental and public understand , also represented a source of
evolution and a sign marked of the times because of the different representation of

role in the formation of contemporary architecture) as a research problem, where

of the approved type for architectural contemporary production, therefore research
indicated to the concepts that related to technology that showed a difference of

convenience, simplicity and complexity, has also been studying the technology
phenomena for its role as a “thing, knowledge, process, product ” with surrounding
the different impact for levels of expression that based on the stereotypical nature, to
order that the research seeks to discuss about the results of the application conceptual
framework for knowledge provided to two contemporary projects in order to clarify
the impact of technology in violation of the traditional nature of the practice of
architecture first, And differences in the impact of technological manifestations of the
