Abstract The purpose of this study is to find out the diverse features of architectural design through 21 case studies in Valerio Olgiati’s architectural design works. For the classification of the characteristics with architectural expression, this research analyzed Valerio Olgiati’s projects and categorized according to architectural planning and design factors. The result of this study is summarized as followed. The first one is that the Valerio Olgiati has argued the new discourse of architectural design such as non-referential architecture, newness, oneness, and contradiction in his works. The second one is that non-referential architecture of Valerio Olgiati includes diverse architectural planning such as spatial configuration, interdependence related with structure, exterior form formation, architectural material, context and environment, and unit formation. The third one is that there are three aspects of the architectural design and the spatial configuration in Valerio Olgiati’s architecture. One is the topological aspect that consists with void, asymmetrical interior spatial configuration, structural interdependence, exterior form from using various contradiction in architectural planning. The another one is the phenomenological aspect which is connected with colored exposed concrete material and context. Lastly, complex system architecture which is related with unit formation and is expanded to 3 dimensional mass formation. This study will provide basic data on the Valerio Olgiati’s architectural design tendency in contemporary architecture.
