A completely fresh perspective on how architecture should adapt to the sensibilities and possibilities of the digital world, written by one of the most talented and influential young voices in design
Carlo Ratti is one of the most influential design thinkers of his generation. An architect, engineer, educator and activist based in Turin and Boston, he directs the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's SENSEable City Lab, a research group that explores how new technologies are changing the way we understand design and live in cities. His writings appear frequently in both design and cultural publications, and his experimental and architectural work has been exhibited around the world. This is his first book. Matthew Claudel studied Architecture at Yale and is currently a researcher at the MIT Senseable City Lab and the MIT Lab for Innovation Science & Policy.
'This is a provocative, open manifesto calling for a major paradigmatic shift in the practice of architecture, to a collaborative, inclusive model using 21st-century trends' - Royal Academy Architecture Journal
