Abstract:

Technology has always affected the development of cities; it is a fundamental instrument that humans could use either for the benefit of the environment to help them reach utopia or for its damage and fall into pure pandemonium. The paper seeks an understanding of the new life-style resulting from the impact of the digital revolution on the environment and the way in which such new life-style would be reflected on spatial development. The new vocabulary and terminology in-use will be first introduced. Consequently, the paper will identify the accelerating speed of changes resulting from the digital revolution on people’s life-style and perception of the environment. In addition, the paper will explore the ways the built environment has to be adapted to this new life-style and demands, to be able to adapt better to the world wide changes which planners and architects are going to be confronted with. Finally, the paper will shed light on the predictions tackled by futurists in dealing with the digital revolution with reference to the new life-style.
