Intelligent Environments - Spatial Aspects of the Information Revolution

Peter Droege

Director, Urban Design Program, Faculty of Architecture, The University of Sydney GO4 (AUS)

The slide presentation characterises the architecture of a paradigm: the implications of information and telecommunications technological changes for the shape of the physical environment.

It focuses particularly on the past twenty years, looking at a pervasive phenomenon, expressed in ways of looking at, representing and describing cities and architecture, packaging urban development, and endowing centuries-old dreams of empowerment and emancipation with neo-humanist, techno-charged meaning.

The sections of the talk are:

(1) Postwar Mediatectures - mass-media inspired paradigm shifts;

(2) Technological Change - some blunt observations;

(3) Information Cities - a brief highlight of some typical info-inspired urban development projects;

(4) Campus City - description of a Japanese project of far-reaching implications;

(5) The Agenda Unfolds - a more in-depth discussion of the "information city" phenomenon;

(6) Intelligent Environments - highlights of a new publication on the matter, published by Elsevier North-Holland;

(7) Campus - an attempt to create a virtual university utilising an urban paradigm; and a brief concluding discussion of some

(8) Implications for research, teaching and the discipline at large.
