Marcos Novak describes himself as a "trans-architect,"
due to his work with computer-generated architectural designs,
conceived specifically for the virtual domain, that do not exist
in the physical world. His immersive, 3-dimensional creations
are responsive to the viewer, transformable though user interaction.
Exploring the potential of abstract and mathematically conceived
forms, Novak has invented a set of conceptual tools for thinking
about and constructing territories in cyberspace.
Novak introduces the concept of "liquid architecture,"
a fluid, imaginary landscape that only exists in the digital
domain. Novak suggests a type of architecture cut loose from
the expectations of logic, perspective, and the laws of gravity,
one that does not conform to the rational constraints of Euclidean
geometries. He views trans-architecture as an expression of
the "4th dimension" that incorporates time alongside space among
its primary elements. Novak's liquid architecture bends, rotates,
and mutates in interaction with the person who inhabits it.
In liquid architecture, "science and art, the worldly and the
spiritual, the contingent and the permanent" converge in a poetics
