Sentient City

14 October 2011 | cities, Reviewing | Post a comment

My review of Sentient City: Ubiquitous Computing, Architecture, and the Future of Urban Space, which appeared in September's Icon magazine, is now online here. It's a fascinating collection of essays and speculations about the city of the future.

As the book's editor Mark Shephard says, we are "on the cusp of a near-future city capable of reflexively monitoring its environment and our behaviour within it, becoming an active agent in the organization of everyday life."
