  • The Architecture of Phantasmagoriaby Libero Andreotti; Nadir Lahiji

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    In a time of mass-mediated modernity, the city becomes, almost by definition, a constitutively ?mediated? city. Today, more than ever before, the omnipresence of media in every sphere of culture is creating a new urban ontology, saturating, fracturing, and exacerbating the manifold experience of city life. The authors describe this condition as one... more...

    There are more than 450 Moshavim settlements and about 270 kibbutzim in Israel.
