Today's spatial formations are based on tectonics and forms of physical environments in terms of dealing with the envisioned and finished configurations. However, as a result of media and information technologies, digital space brings out a new interpretation and aspect to the architectural space within the new concepts of space, time and reality. By digital space, users can imagine, produce, share, and store their perception and experiences in a new kind of territory which is based on data and information. The incremental and ever-changing needs of user and inclusively improving environments are the most common impacts of this information age that give rise to the importance of information rather than material. Stratified space is a combination of the physical space and digital space. Within this combination, we suggest a new concept of architectural space which will respond the dynamic, unpredictable and ever-changing needs of its users and environmental conditions.
