Architecture's role in Digitopia

Dissertation _ BA Architecture, Oxford Brookes - 2010

The boundary between the virtual and physical worlds is slowly vanishing and with the increasing virtual world consuming more of our day to day activities, many challenges and fascinating opportunities await the architects who design these virtual spaces. Is there an opportunity to creating a virtual utopia - a “Digitopia”, after thousands of years attempting to create a physical one? And what perils must designers and inhabitants of these worlds avoid so as to steer clear of dystopia?
