more on Topophobia, public realm, architecture. Gallery Jitters
( reposted from will789gb on Posterous, seems to be very slow today) Casual browsing finds some more on Topophobia http://www.csm.arts.ac.uk/research/researchgroups/artpublicrealm/ So I think it is a fair question to ask about if there is anything positive at all, just possibly, about online. Previous post today on Tumblr but I can't get the hang of it. more on Topophobia, public realm, architecture. Gallery Jitters Started there to follow Spaces Review Group but now can't quite find it. Central St Martins has recently moved to King's cross where there are some impressive water features centred on the canal. I am reminded of the Exeter Forum. My theory is that virtual worlds have had a deeper influence for longer than is often supposed. Space design in the last decade seems to be trying to imitate an online situation where space is unlimited. But iun reality the function can get lost I think. For example a campus without a bookshop. Anyway, sorry going off topic. Please suggest some academic language on why research universities need to invest in architecture at this time.
