Summary: The new information and communication technologies have taken their place in the lives of most people with breathtaking speed. Virtual ways of covering great spatial distances has thus become a given thing. The idea of tying oneself to one place in the long term is becoming more and more obsolete. Alain Bourdin, Franck Eckardt, and Andrew Wood show: Urbanity has also begun to separate from its physical context and spatial origins, expanding by dimensions of virtuality. The virtualization of the urban not only puts the traditional spatiality of the city into perspective. The image of the predictably planned city turns out to be a fiction of modernity become historical.
