edited by Alessandro Aurigi and Fiorella de Cindio
“This book explores the intersection and articulation of physical and digital environments and the ways they can extend and reshape a spirit of place. It considers this from three main perspectives: the implications for the public sphere and urban public or semi-public spaces; the implications for community regeneration and empowerment; and the dilemmas and challenges which the augmentation of space implies for urbanists. Grounded with international real life case studies, this is an up-to-date, interdisciplinary and holistic overview of the relationships between cities, communities and high technologies.”–Back cover
