Designing Virtual Worlds

By Richard A. Batle

Is an innovative treatment of virtual world design to-date? Yes it is. It is a tour de force of VW design, stunning in intellectual scope, spanning the literary, economic, sociological, psychological, physical, technological, and ethical underpinnings of design, while providing the reader with a deep, well-grounded understanding of VW design principles.

A Place of My own

By Michael Pollan

Invoking the titans of architecture, literature, and philosophy, from Vitruvius to Thoreau, from the Chinese masters of feng shui to the revolutionary Frank Lloyd Wright, Pollan brilliantly chronicles a realm of blueprints, joints, and trusses as he peers into the ephemeral nature of “houseness” itself.

Welcome to Your World: How the Built Environment Shapes Our Lives

By Sarah Williams Goldhagen

One of the nation’s chief architecture critics reveals how the virtual reality builds profoundly shape their feelings, memories, and wellbeing, and argues that they must harness this knowledge to construct a world better suited to human experience.
