Under the influence of new technologies, the spatial and temporal order of cities is increasingly disintegrating, and working and living conditions are fundamentally changing. What will be the outcome of these dynamics for the individual and for the city? Based on the lifestyle of a new elite who benefit from the service economy, this book discusses the potential consequences for architecture and urban planning. In an experimental study, an urban-planning strategy for a new service site in Sydney is being developed in which information and communication technologies become decisive factors of the plan. “Serve City” stands for the modern, interactive city of the near future.
