Mediated space: the architecture of news, advertising and entertainment

Mediated space: the architecture of news, advertising and entertainment

Brown, James Benedict, author; Royal Institute of British Architects

As the social media revolution embeds itself in our daily lives, and as those who once consumed media become producers, established broadcast media producers are witnessing the dissolution of trust in their established authority. This book critiques contemporary intersections of architecture and broadcast media that exploit spaces and places that are real, imagined or hybrids of the two in order to re-establish and strengthen the power of traditional capitalist mechanisms of production and consumption. Examining eight spatial constructions in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, James Brown embarks on a global exploration of how architecture, spatial design and technology conspire in the service of global capitalism
