Summary
  • "This edited collection of essays brings together the author's key writings on the cultural, technological and theoretical developments reshaping modern architecture into a responsive and diverse movement for the twenty-first century." "Chris Abel approaches his subject from a wide range of knowledge, including cybernetics, philosophy, new human science and development planning, as well as his experience as a teacher and critic on four continents. The result is a global perspective on the changing nature of modern architecture at the turn of the millennium. Including two new chapters, this revised and expanded second edition offers radical insights into such topics as: the impact of information technology on customized architectural production; the relations between tradition and innovation; prospects for a global eco-culture, and the local and global forces shaping the architecture and cities of Asia."--Jacket
