Digital Derive

MIT’s Digital Derive project takes Guy Debord’s theory of the dérive into the contemporary age.

When the Blob is long dead and buried, we may look to this kind of project as the harbinger of a new age in which architecture begins to take more full advantage of what digital technology has to offer. See also the other work of the Sensable City Lab at MIT.
