In the contemporary world, the phenomenon of techno-creation [1, 2, 3, 4] can be observed in many parts of life – in every place where human creativity is combined with new technologies. This process also influences on the water architecture [5, 6] where new materials, techniques and technologies – or more precisely, the effects of combining them with a natural material (including water) or even replacing it with them – is more or less harmonious/contrasted. By analysing of modern European buildings (construction) and objects of landscape architecture the authors notice the new approaches to use of "water" in contemporary architecture. The modern experience of modelling space with three states of water (solid, liquid and vapour) extends the concept of "architecture of water" incorporated into the design practice in late 20th century. Properly shaped, technologically advanced solutions of water spaces become an important way to create architecture and landscape.
