MANIFEST

Enhanchements in information technologies and its relation with social structure, network formations and archiving starts to change the way people use the city. Being in a particular ‘place’ is a negotiable manner according to the future of the information technologies. Location and place are seperated and local information is gained from the aggregeration of events in a particular location. Formations of city elements are evolving in this social progress, however in order to support new social dynamics and give an acceleration to the evolution of city elements, city needs hybrid solutions. Being temporary will be a key situation as information flow increases the archival process and taxonomy will more tied to certain location and time. This temporary circumstance will lead to a situation of structures adopting themselves as intelligent entities that supports the information generation in certain location and time.
