about the book:
Media and Architecture = Mediatecture
First comprehensive manual on the media facade and media spaces
Perspectives, technology, and impact: numerous examples and contributions by renowned specialists
Every era creates its own style having a strong impact on architecture and space. Through the growing importance of electronic media and the services provided by the internet, the delimitation between physical and virtual spaces is becoming increasingly fuzzy. Christoph Kronhagel, a worldwide renowned specialist for media facades and technology, gives these phenomena the collective name 'mediatecture', a compound of the words 'media' and 'architecture'. His book approaches the new phenomenon methodologically, in form of elements providing basic knowledge on mediatectonic work, in particular for media facades.
Together with worldwide leading specialists from the fields of technology, urban construction, computer sciences, arts and marketing,he has established a unique manual that, thanks to its focus on the media facade, primarily addresses architects and designers.
