Digital Dreams
Neil Spiller

Apr 2000
Paperback

Book Description
This book is an examination of the role of architecture in the era of virtual reality, cyberspace and nano-technology. Three threads run through it: theoretical writing: drawn project work; and descriptive texts--linked graphically rather than chronologically or hierarchically. We are on the verge of a major shift in direction. Technological explorations into cyberspace, molecular and tissue engineering, genetics and the theories of complex systems are accelerating and will drastically change our environment -- and therefore our architecture.

Book Review
Ages 12 and up. Who would have thought the author of the gritty classic Speak had a gift for comedy? Here she demonstrates her comedic talent in the warm and witty story of Ashley, who is definitely not a prom-type person, and her best friend Nat, who lives for the prom. When the math teacher disappears with the funds just eleven days before the dance, determined and organized Nat goes into high gear to find alternative ways to make the prom happen and drags an unwilling Ashley into the flurry of urgent details.

Ashley has enough problems in her life already, starting with the complexities of her crowded but loving working class family -- her extremely pregnant mother and her three exuberant and prom-crazy aunts, and her cab-driving father and three younger brothers, who think nothing of happily trashing the kitchen in...
