This chapter describes architecture as a fluid and expansive spatial network with a history; however, participatory networks acknowledge the existing forces of social, economic, and political fields, affecting people’s spatial situations. It cites Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s “relational architecture” as an example, wherein it promotes interaction between real and virtual structures encompassing different timeframes. It then reveals that dependencies create a network of people helping each other to feel the sense of belongingness.

Keywords:   spatial network, participatory networks, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, relational architecture, real structures, virtual structures, dependencies, belongingness
