About this title

Synopsis:

Discover how digital technology is affecting the bricks and mortar of the places where we live and work. The author, a well-known expert on the applications of digital technology, analyzes its impact on the physical design of housing, stores, offices, libraries, and schools. He also examines the effect on regions and cities, including the hard and soft infrastructures essential to attracting high-wage technology companies. Throughout the book, examples illustrate how digital technology has affected the design of a wide variety of project types and how digital places can be created. Ideal for architects, developers, planners, and technologists who want to be on the cutting edge of design.

From the Publisher:

"In Digital Places: Building Our City of Bits, Thomas Horan picks up the story at the dawn of a new century. He can look back on a tumultuous half-decade of digital infrastructure development (not so long, it might seem, but it's half a lifetime in Internet years), and a dot-com bubble of truly giga scale. He has telling examples to show, and a growing body of empirical data to rely upon. Most importantly, he has practical suggestions, grounded in experiences of success and failure so far, for designers and planners who seek to engage the problems and pursue the potentials of the digital electronic era."

From the foreword by William J. Mitchell
