'The contemporary urban environment is composed and decomposed by each Individual every day around literal and virtual itineraries, and not relation to a fixed arrangement of places'.- Albert pope.
In the future we will establish radical relationships with the spun around us. What we knew as local will become global as virtual worlds will become even more involved in our day to day experiences. Leaving behind the concept of space as we knew it, we suggest a re-examination of its identity. The project examines the concept of "building is not a single instance" And then the city is the three-dimensional spatial field of activity and human complexity. Each building stores a range of mixed uses that reveal to the observer countless choices of activities, meetings and thrills that produce a series of spatial events related to one another and not a singular space creation. In the 21st century a person's private space is used in addition to its functional aspect also as a connection to the outside using virtual dimensions leading to invention of the term "placeless". Thus, through the same residential unit one can meet and experience countless spaces. We believe that to urban space will not lose relevance, and interpersonal meetings will continue the city must create a show full of spatial simulations and meeting options that will lure a person to leave the private virtual space for the opportunities that the actual urban\public space will provide..
