Living (e)Books


A series of 21 'Living Books about Life' has been launched online as part of a pioneering initiative to provide a bridge between the humanities and the sciences. The books are written and produced by humanities scholars from universities worldwide, and re-package scientific research to make it more accessible, and freely available, to a non-scientific audience. Several of the titles are likely to be of interest to architects, and feature topics such as surveillance, energy, and the man-machine interface.
