Vicente Guallart, pioneer of new media, examines the technological, social and cultural changes in our information society for new urban building. Presenting the last 15 years of his work, this book investigates architecture’s ability to construct systems for inhabitable environments in diverse environmental, social, and economic conditions. His collaborations with specialists in geology, anthropology, sociology, engineering, economics, software and interface design have blurred traditional boundaries. The projects follow a “natural” logic, referring to components originating in nature, as well as to environmental systems. A logic that connects nature with the transformations of urban spaces, social organizations, and the digital world.
Vicente Guallart (Valencia 1963) is the Director of Sociópolis, an innovative international housing project for urban development.
