Abstract: The 21st century society is proven to be addict to instant gratification and permanent comfort. In the search of this new efficiency, we became technology-dependent in almost every field of our lives. Urban planning and architecture are not alien to this phenomenon. In USA’s central belt, technology applied to logistics is dramatically changing architecture and, by extension architecture is affecting urban planning. New vast ghost cities are emerging in which architecture is inhabited solely by robots. A technology created by humans has expelled humans from architecture. Simultaneously, cities are being deprived of productive and distributive functions, generating empty spaces that need to be fulfilled. This is a two-speed phenomenon: productive technologies inexorably speed up in the digital world, whereas transportation systems are yet analogic-dependent. Architects need to confront both the urban and architectural challenges emerged from this new reality and give a physical response to the irrelevance of human scale.
