Information technologies are revolutionizing architecture and urban design, transforming teaching and practice, and challenging our understanding of space, place, and society. Buildings are changing too - through active controls, smart materials, and ubiquitous computing. As people begin to inhabit virtual on-line places we are rethinking the very meaning of community.

The dmg is exploring how these changes will affect design, how designers can apply these changes, and how human inhabitation of space will be influenced by both.
