The changes which Information Technology has brought to all area of our lives have been dramatic. Even in architecture its influence has been far-reaching, creating new processes opening up exciting new prospects. In this book, Peter Eisenman, Derrick de Kerckhove and Antonino Saggio write boldly on the challenges which now face young architects. The IT Revolution offers opportunities which were previously undreamt of, but at the same time, danger lurks in the realm of virtuality with its implication of unlimited possibilities.
Furio Barzon uses examples from contemporary architecture to underscore the three text contributions and also places them in the context of state of the art technology and future developments.
Eisenman along with Gehry is one of the USA's most important living architects; de Kerckhove heads the McLuhan Program in Culture and Technology in Toronto; Saggio is Professor in Rom and editor of the series IT Revolution in Architecture.
