Futurologists and technological forecasting experts keep proposing prognostic models for the development of our civilisation. The science and technology basis of the future will allow any form of life to be created and the pace of such new life to be set within a qualitatively new architectural environment taking into account all the needs of the person of the future.

Nature is the humans’ closest environment, in which they have been evolving and existing for thousands of years. The future environment will personify a strong and harmonious relation between the person and the natural world. Nature with its resources is a valuable factor for ensuring the existence and creating a high-quality living environment.

Thanks to the fractal geometry, theory of chaos and theory of nonlinear systems, absolutely different artistic and aesthetic systems are likely to arise in the architecture of the future.

This concept of a biotechnogenic residential module represents conflict-free architecture as part of the natural environment, being in contact with and supporting the latter. The architecture of the future, fundamentally new in all parameters, presents the space of a biotechnogenic information field, which goes through all life cycles such as transformation, collapsibility, and disposal and it will also meet a number of functional requirements such as protection, comfort, scope for creativity, help, programmability, plasticity and dynamics, resistance, fractality, and autonomy.

The concept of a biotechnogenic residential module relies on advances in science and technology and application of living organism principles.

The proposed concept of a modular living system will be formed on the basis of harmonious transfer of the living nature’s principles to architectural form generation, complete dissolution of architecture in the nature, mobility of versatile residential modules, unity of form and content, synthesis of spatial structures and application of advanced scientific and technological developments.

Key words: living environment, architecture of the future, biotechnogenic residential module, ultratechnological biosynthesized architectural space
