Placing Words

Post by planeta »

William J. Mitchell
Placing Words, MIT Press, 2005, (144 pages, $16.95)

- Subtitled "Symbols, Space and the City" this book is the work of a MIT Professor of Architecture and Media Arts. Among the topics this book addresses is the necessity of flashy downtown office towers in an age of corporate Web sites. Author of the e-topia and another half dozen scintillating titles for information nerds, Mitchell has fashioned his latest collection of essays around headlines and pop culture fodder. Placing Words is insightful, colorful and fun.
