Digital mobility-an architecture for the digital lifestyle

by Chachula, Mark W.

Abstract (Summary)
Being mobile means having the ability to easily access goods, services, information and people from other physical locations. Traditionally this meant traveling from place to place or building to building. With the computer and the internet, however, it is possible to do these things all from one single location regardless of where we are on Earth. This is Digital Mobility. Today with the internet this takes place through a screen using a mouse and keyboard as opposed to through experiencing a variety of buildings and spaces. Architecture for the digital lifestyle will merge our digital experiences with physical experiences by providing a reconfigurable environment that allows us to truly inhabit the internet. Instead of experiencing the internet through the screen it is experienced through the building and the space we inhabit. In this way there is access to many different places and environments from one single location. It is architecture that embodies digital mobility.
