Author/sMontejano Escamilla, Jorge A.
It has been argued that new information and communications technologies (ICT) have been fundamental for urban expansion. Also, from the late sixties until the end of the past millennium, the “dead of the city” had been heralded .Throughout this theoretical paper, we review literature concerning the impact that new technologies have had over the metropolization process, debunking some premises and exemplifying the spatial transformations. The first part analyses the dispersion /concentration potential inherent to ICT. The second part highlights the importance and legitimacy of face -to - face relationships that allow urban agglomerations to be in force. Finally, we enlist new research lines that relates ICT with cities.
