Item description for Verb Connection by Albert Ferre & Tomoko Sakamoto...
The city in the electronic era is the focus of this third volume of the boogazine Verb. Verb Transits considers the impact of electronic technology on urban reality, on the forms which it is takes, on new phenomena and that which generates it, but also on the means through which all aspects of city space are experienced and lived. This exploration ranges from the strange typological hybrids of the ultra-dense Asian city, to the specifically American mixture of real and entertainment city, to the relationship between the physcial network on the ground and its sister network the Internet. Rem Koolhaas and the Harvard Design Institute go shopping; Annete Baldauf visits the open-air mall; and Norman Klein travels from the Vatican to Las Vegas. Colorful, tactile, dense, and packaged in its own very contemporary design, Verb Connectionremains devoted to cutting-edge issues in architecture and design.
