The modern nomad: the coffee-toting commuter, the automobile driver, the men and women who funnel into the underground railway stations at the end of a busy day...Nomad+Design is not just a book.
It is a theoretical and cognitive survey instrument, which discusses the phenomenon of migration as a necessary consideration at every stage of cityscape and urban design. This is a series of books, designed to explore architectural practices through a multidisciplinary approach.
Topics engaged with in the first book included the concept of a 'global network city', the trans-nationalisation of migration routes, expanding communication technologies, and methods of tracking and measuring the dynamic flow of people.
This, the second book, explores the logic of mobility and transience.
It identifies changing behaviours among commuters, studying how poor habits of consumption, hybridisation and contamination have both discouraged and enforced a nomadic lifestyle.
Both books also discuss the performative aspect of design.
The abstract theoretical concepts featured herein are given a concrete base in cast studies.
