Summary
"The book explains how buildings and cities have evolved to meet the needs of people who use the latest technology. Not only do architects plan and design using newly-developed computer software, but their structures are built with modern construction techniques and continually-improving materials." "Covering the full range of technologies from material science to telecommunications, this book explains the face of the contemporary city and points the way to future developments in architectural design."--BOOK JACKET
