Complex modeling presents new and contemporary subject in architecture. The loop between the idea, programming, digital modeling and physical models gives the possibility to come to new conclusions that help develop architectural projects. This paper aims to show the advantages of multidisciplinary architectural projects through a workshop held at the University of Belgrade - Faculty of Architecture. The participants of this workshop, from different backgrounds and faculties, have been doing a research about the use of mechatronics in architecture. The mechatronic system was analyzed on a physical model based on the project by the architectural studio 4of7 Architecture for Slavija square in Belgrade. One of the aims of this workshop was to show the user-object-environment relationship and to explore the advantages and disadvantages of this kind of architectural design. The final product of this workshop is an interactive physical model that can show the movement of architectu...ral elements in real-time. This model can help in the education about the use of mechatronics as a new design method in architecture. The concluding argument would show the possibilities of mechatronics in architectural projects for urban space and it will aim to place it on the map of design methodologies in architecture.
