Digitalization permeates conversations about society’s future—ever since the 1980s when the informatization of the economy also emerged as a popular urban development theme. The promises and realities of digital innovation have come to suffuse everything from city regions to astronomy, government to finance, art to medicine, politics to warfare, and from genetics to reality itself.
Digital systems augmenting physical space, buildings, and communities occupy a special place in the evolutionary discourse about advanced technology. The two Intelligent Environments books edited by Peter Droege span a quarter of a century across this genre. The second volume, Intelligent Environments: Advanced Systems for a Healthy Planet, asks: how does civilization approach thinking systems, intelligent spatial models, design methods, and support structures designed for sustainability, in ways that could even counteract challenges to terrestrial habitability?
The result of this quest is useful, practical, and informative: it opens doors to what must now become a rapidly growing and overarching existential focus. This book presents a range of practical, typical, systemic but also unusual and even sublime endeavors across regions, currencies, infrastructure, architecture, transactive electricity, geodesign, net-positive planning, remote work, integrated transport, and artificial intelligence in understanding the most immediate spatial setting: the human body.

  • Utilizes a cross-disciplinary approach to exploring intelligence-enhanced sustainability systems
  • A fully updated and reorganized edition that is topically structured in thematically linked yet stand-alone chapters and referenced to a global body of knowledge for ease of discovery and access
  • Challenges spatial support technologies and information systems to enable human survival and protecting planetary biospheric webs and diversity, in an as nontechnical language as possible
  • Includes images, maps, diagrams, and references to videos to enhance understanding
