Frazer, John H & Fischer, Thomas (2005) Modeling Architecture as Logic States in Space and Time: History and Future of the Universal Constructor. In Chiu, Mao-Lin (Ed.) CAAD Talks 5 - Insights of Smart Environments. Archidata Co., Ltd., Taiwan, pp. 87-104.
This chapter summarizes some key developments in the history of a unique "smart environment" the Universal Constructor.

Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
