Architecture: Between Weather and Electromagnetic Radiation – part 2

How do building properties affect the propagation of radio waves? How has this been addressed in building design? How could we bring the thinking about connectivity in space closer to architects? In line with Reyner Banham's criticism of the division of the buildings creation process into two intellectually separate parts, this article focuses specifically on the way buildings filter the propagation of wireless communication signals. arguing for a holistic approach....
