Introduction of IT Revolution in Arhitecture - a short Book review

This book is not so easy to understand. It has an alert rythm. I found the chapter "Model" relevant for my topic and the definition of diagram as a "series of relations that prefigure of the finished work ..." (A. Saggio) a useful and operational instrument for my research. I would like to develope two comparative-analysis, which were mentioned in the book: theory/model and plan/diagram. In this sens I read especially:
HEALY Patrick, The Model and its Architecture, 010 Publishers, Rotterdam 2008
MOON Karen, Modeling Messages: The Architect and the Model, The Monacelli Press, New York 2005
I would like to extend the research in the urbanism by reading:
CHOAY Francoise, La regle et le modele: Sur la theorie de l'architecture et de l'urbanisme, Edition du Seuil, Paris 1996
TORRES Marco, Nuovi modelli di citta. Agglomerazioni, infrastutture, luoghi centrali e pianificazione urbanistica, Franco Angeli, Milano 2004
