The change of perception and attitude towards the passage of time becomes evident in architecture through the common use of technologies and materials. Whereas once the longevity of a building was almost unquestioned - buildings were designed to stand forever - increasingly more often issues such as speed, flexibility and temporality come to the forefront. The apparent lightness of such an approach is facilitated by technological advances that silently have changed the way how the spaces surrounding us are formed.
