Mapping in the age of digital media: the Yale Symposium
Combining the insights of designers, theorists, engineers and artists this book examines the cultural, aesthetic and political effects of mapping techniques on the fields of cultural production in art, science and architecture
In recent years, new digital mapping techniques have begun to alter profoundly the ways in which we measure and represent space. In architecture, it is such techniques that have made possible such extraordinary structures as Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao.
3D scanning technology, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Satellite Positioning Systems to mention just a few have produced unique visions of architecture and its environment.
