In recent years there has been a gradually increasing interest in the terms on which the design and representation of the architectural object is based. This interest, as a product of the occurrence of digital technologies and the convergence of different scientific fields, is based on the specialization of design tools in such a way as to support and enhance the discussion around digital holography as an open process for action. Up until now, the dialogue on the form and representation of the architectural object has paid much greater attention to the creation of tangible models, which function as vehicles for the shaping and projection of visual messages that express and convey the designed object to the social whole. However, the true challenge lies in the development of a methodology or mechanism which, having as its starting point the traditional object representation practices, will allow for a combination of new technologies towards creating new visual messages. In this text, the process of putting together a new architectural object, the digital hologram, will be seen as one such mechanism. The new views and strategies on space are open to treating spatial constructions, as a restructuring of the structures that could bring about changes for more favorable conditions for the representation of the architectural form. Thus, the strategies of architectural pioneering are judged by their ability to develop new procedures that are capable of reversing. This is clearly a pragmatic approach to pioneering, which in the best cases manages to assign new meanings to traditional concepts with which architecture is associated, and to take different design and representation parameters into account in the process of creating an object.
