OASE 66 investigates the expression and use of architecture in science fiction and specifically in cyberpunk (cyberfiction). Science fiction, originally a literary and later a film genre, explores the relation between scientific and technological developments and their possible social-cultural influences and effects. Understanding science fiction as the twentieth-century venue for imaginative extrapolations of possible futures, and cyberpunk as a subcategory of science fiction dealing specifically with the information age, they both seem to offer an interesting arena in which to compare various articulations of the future architectural environment.
