This project explores how architecture can exist in a form of a network. Nobody is alone in our contemporary society, where computer terminals create a condition of being ‘linked’ to every place and every one. This is a network where a person becomes the node. Architecture, in this case, is where a myriad of nodes are collected.
However, the collection of nodes does not converge into one big node. The individual nodes remain in motion, depicting a projection of intertwining, approaching and receding. In this condition, the program in demand is where these fluctuating nodes collect; thus, a shared office where businesses operate in a system similar to Amazon. Architecture becomes a giant server for the city.
