Carchitecture examines the fallout from this near-fatal impact, sifting through the debris of movements, debates, solutions and situations, searching for a new direction." "Carchitecture argues that cars and architecture should rein themselves back from the brink of disaster, straighten the fender and jump-start the debate. Each has much to offer the other, not only in terms of technology and aesthetics, but also in the need to reconcile the car's social role with its pariah status. With its focus firmly on the need to design better urban environments, Carchitecture is a journey through our most familiar landscapes and the ideas which are helping to shape their future."" ;
