Product Description This visually stunning, conceptually richÂ and imaginative book investigates the cultural connection between new media and architectural imaging. Through a range of material, from theoretical texts to experimental design projects, Tierney explores notions of what the architectural image means today. Within the book's visually imaginative design framework, Abstract Space engages discourses from architecture, visual and cultural studies to computer science and communications technology to presentÂ an in-depth multi-media case study. Tracing a provisional history of the topic, the book also lends a provocative and multivalent understanding to the complex relations affecting the architectural image today. About the Author Therese Tierney is a doctoral scholar at the University of California Berkeley where she is a Malcolm Reynolds Fellow.
