In an age dominated by the Internet and electronic media it is becoming increasingly clear that our perception of space is also undergoing a profound transformation. The author takes the reader on a fascinating journey, revealing who has played a part in this transformation. Avant-garde artists, including Boccioni, Duchamp and Kandinsky, the architect Gropius, philosophers such as Wittgenstein and psychoanalysts like Carl Gustav Jung all contributed to this development. Today, our awareness of traditional architectural space is changing; buildings are being rendered transparent, fleeting and intangible, enhanced by virtual potential. The author looks at works by Rem Koolhaas, Jean Nouvel, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, James Wines, Daniel Libeskind, Toyo Ito, which reflect building in an age of virtual realism.
