Abstract:

"How do we experience architecture? In this study, Mitchell Schwarzer argues that our perception of architecture has been fundamentally altered by transportation and camera technologies. We experience buildings, neighborhoods, cities, and landscapes as we ride in trains, cars, and planes, and as we view photographs, movies, and television. We perceive places at high speeds, across great distances, in states of distraction, and through edited and multiple reproductions. Drawing upon a range of examples, from the novels of Don DeLillo to the television show The Sopranos, the author shows that what he calls the "zoomscape" has brought about unprecedented and often marvelous ways of perceiving the built environment."--BOOK JACKET.
