The Situated Technologies Pamphlets series explores the implications of ubiquitous computing for architecture and urbanism.
How is our experience of the city and the choices we make in it affected by mobile communications, pervasive media, ambient informatics, and other “situated” technologies? How will the ability to design increasingly responsive environments alter the way architects conceive of space? What do architects need to know about urban computing, and what do technologists need to know about cities?
Published in nine issues, the Situated Technologies Pamphlets were edited by a rotating list of leading researchers and practitioners from architecture, art, philosophy of technology, comparative media study, performance studies, and engineering.
