Situated Technologies Pamphlets 6: MicroPublicPlaces
Ships in 3-5 business days
The Situated Technologies Pamphlets series, published by the Architectural League, explores the implications of ubiquitous computing for architecture and urbanism. How are our experience of the city and the choices we make in it are affected by mobile communications, pervasive media, ambient informatics and other “situated” technologies?
In response to the rise of pervasive information technologies and the privatization of the public sphere, Situated Technologies Pamphlets 6, written by Marc Böhlen and Hans Frei, proposes hybrid architectural programs called MicroPublicPlaces (MPPs). MPPs combine insights from ambient intelligence, human computing, architecture, social engineering, and urbanism to initiate ways to reanimate public life in contemporary societies.
