Entr acte Book Review:

The entr'acte denotes the specific construction of both time and space between parts of a stage performance. Generally taking place in front of closed curtains during set changes between acts, the entr'acte delivers a fleeting new purpose and event to the otherwise sometimes inert space between stage and pit. This collection employs the entr'acte as a model for conceptualizing emerging formations of publics and of public space, in particular with the rapidly evolving proliferation of communications technologies that today result in new forms and durations of the public: as spaces, as socialities, and as discourses. Formed without the vast material intervention and deployment of capital of public space past, these defy traditional limits of design and construction. This book examines their qualities and their players, both human and material, as performers of different sorts; as entr'acteurs. The book brings together key thinkers at the intersections of performance, new media, urban studies and architecture to explore this new world of interim publics.

Bleak Houses Book Review:

Why some architects fail to realize their ideal buildings, and what architecture critics can learn from novelists. The usual history of architecture is a grand narrative of soaring monuments and heroic makers. But it is also a false narrative in many ways, rarely acknowledging the personal failures and disappointments of architects. In Bleak Houses, Timothy Brittain-Catlin investigates the underside of architecture, the stories of losers and unfulfillment often ignored by an architectural criticism that values novelty, fame, and virility over fallibility and rejection. As architectural criticism promotes increasingly narrow values, dismissing certain styles wholesale and subjecting buildings to a Victorian litmus test of “real” versus “fake,” Brittain-Catlin explains the effect this superficial criticality has had not only on architectural discourse but on the quality of buildings. The fact that most buildings receive no critical scrutiny at all has resulted in vast stretches of ugly modern housing and a pervasive public illiteracy about architecture.

Context Aware Pervasive Systems Book Review:

The concept of aware systems is among the most exciting trends in computing today, fueled by recent developments in pervasive computing, including new computers worn by users, embedded devices, smart appliances, sensors, and varieties of wireless networking technology. Context-Aware Pervasive Systems: The Architecture of a New Breed of Applications introduces a diverse set of application areas and provides blueprints for building context-aware behavior into applications. Reviewing the anatomy of context-aware pervasive applications, this resource covers abstract architecture. It examines mobile services, appliances, smart devices, software agents, electronic communication, sensor networks, security frameworks, and intelligent software agents. The book also discusses the use of context awareness for communication among people, devices, and software agents and how sensors can be aware of their own situations. Exploring the use of physical context for controlling and enhancing security in pervasive computing environments, this guide addresses mirror worlds and elucidates design perspectives based on a declarative programming language paradigm. This carefully paced volume presents a timely and relevant introduction to the emergence of context-aware systems and brings together architectures and principles of context-aware computing in one source.

Advances in Information Architecture Book Review:

This volume reveals the history of Information Architecture (IA), reflects on the relationship between practice and research within the discipline, and presents educators with the latest models, frameworks and theories that have emerged from the Information Architecture Academics and Practitioners Roundtable between 2014 and 2019. The most comprehensive and up-to-date overview of Information Architecture so far, this collection is a valuable tool for teachers, researchers, and practitioners interested in recent advances in information architecture in areas such as pervasive computing and embodiment, artificial intelligence, design practice, diversity and ethics in design, and critique. The information landscape has grown more complex, porous and connected–the information challenges of smart phones, sensors and IoT demand focused attention from organizations that often embrace a ‘move fast and break things’ ethos. This book not only explores the shift from Classical IA to Contemporary IA–it asks, are today’s creators prepared to solve the challenges ahead? Have industry-led disciplines abdicated their responsibility to the people who inhabit current information environments? Will this discipline persist? Advances in Information Architecture examines the maturity of the field, revisits the discipline’s efforts to transform itself in 2013 with the publication of "Reframing Information Architecture", and considers the opportunities that remain to bridge the academic and practitioner communities.
