Aligning urban planning and architectural design into mechanical production branches, as well as acting in the same way, leads to certain problems that mostly affect humans as primary users of every urban space. Elements which form cities are often a product of inadequate mode of thinking and interpreting of urban-architectural code. Turning off the real principles that underlie human life and existence of its natural environment, implies the creation of inadequate conditions and spaces with low “lifeness” and usability. Lack of “lifeness” in public spaces is reflected in features such as unattractiveness and inaccessibility, but also in the way of their using (major absence of user retention, usage only in necessary situations etc). Key to regeneration and further development of urban and architectural activities is echoed in enabling more quality and intense communication between space and users. By identifying and studying parameters the non-technical idea is based on, and... through detection of established relations between them, it is possible to obtain relevant information and response to prevailing problem of current mechanical way of understanding nature, but also creating urban spaces which do not correspond to essence of people. Accordingly, the main idea of this paper is to present a new scientific andresearch approach, based on the integration and overlapping knowledge from completely different areas of science and everyday life. Non-mechanical approach is based on seven basic parameters, such as: attractors, fractals, iteration, algorithms, organized complexity, networking and manifest patterns. Recognition of each of these parameters in nature and structure of the human body, is kind of confirmation that their application in urban and architectural domain could bring a wide range of positive characteristics. So, it will be easier to overcome and solve the problems that arise as an outcome of the mechanical perception of nature and corresponding actions in cities.
