dc.description.abstract New means of interaction in the electronic realm are transforming activities of our society that have traditionally occurred in the spatial realm. Since the development of public space has traditionally been the center of the domain reserved for the practice of architecture, this transfer of activity from the spatial to the electronic can be interpreted as an slipping away of the lifeblood of the profession. After initially proposing a way for the architectural profession to positively impact the problem of the decline of equality in contemporary culture, the focus of this investigation shifted to the nature of the relationships between architecture and the physical and electronic worlds. The conclusion is that the profession of architecture should not abandon the strength of its empirical knowledge about human needs in the physical world in an uphill effort to compete for control over the new means of interaction in the electronic realm.
