We are living in a a very complex world were there are many developments taking place, an era in which change and information can move faster than our ability to realize them, through science. There is a rapid change in what we know and everything is becoming complex rather than simple, and thus we have to make new ways that will allow us to understand the world. The Berlin wall was stopping any exchange of information into the east Germany, and a major factor that started leading to this information spreading was the collapse of the wall, and now by the disappearance of of the wall, there was no longer a a barrier separating the west and the east, but rather there was the interaction between Germany and the rest of the world. The internet is the greatest factor that increased this culture network because information is transferred easier. And now network culture had an impact on industrial organizations such that these organizations started focusing on communication, technologies and media networks which made the impact of things greater. So organizations whether they are social, political or economics started having great impact through the use of communication technology. As for media or technology improved through phones, internet, TVs... Moreover Mark Taylor was also relating this big transition to complex network culture, to how architecture practices, and show this transition by considering the work of three architects: Mies van der Rohe, Robert Venturi, and Frank Gehry. So he was trying to relate this change to architecture.
In an outstanding way, Mark Taylor traces a completely different way to see the evolution of our culture, detailing how information theory and the scientific concept of complexity can be used to understand recent developments in the art and humanities.
