By Ken Friedman on May 1, 1999
Format: Hardcover
Droege, Peter, editor. 1998. Intelligent Environments. Spatial Aspects of the Information Revolution. Amsterdam: Elsevier.
The opening paragraph of Peter Droege's extraordinary anthology summarizes the theme of this issue of Built Environment: "The environment -- as modified and created by people -- is largely about the use of information, its generation and exchange. How do recent innovations in the technologies of information management and communication affect our use of space and place, and the way we perceive and think about our surroundings ?"
Thirty-six contributions in this book reflect on and answer multiple aspects of that multiplex question. The selection of authors is impeccable, the choice of themes intelligent, the book well written and comprehensive. Any reader who wishes to understand the relationships between information, place and policy should start with this book.
Highlights of this excellent volume include Droege's essay on the city of the future in a virtual world, Sassen on centrality and globalization influenced by telematics, Rayport and Sviolka on the marketplace of marketspace, Mitchell on recombinant architecture and Seaman on interactive architectures as well as reports on specific experiences in European regions, Australian industry, Singapore's IT policy and Korea's information strategy.
Reviewed in: "Information, Place and Policy: Six Titles for a Basic Library," _Built Environment_, vol. 24, no. 2/3, p. 191.
