The City as a form of interiority, has a tendency to reproduce itself, remaining identical to itself across its variations and easily recognizable within the limits of its poles, always seeking public recognition and stimulation (there is no masked city). There is an ambiguous quality of the city, or response to the city, that is hard to classify; it's neither the technologies in the usual sense of the word, nor the "mass/space" in the literal sense. It is their relation to one another in a mutual principle.In collaboration with Arch. Yosuke Hayano.

The levels of mutualism interact through organic modes of causation and are essentially the interchange of meaning.The intellect and consciousness are integral parts of this exchange. Psychological inquiry into consciousness needs to recognize the special character of organic causation and to consider meaning in an environmentally realistic way.In life we are subject to a complete morphogenesis, physical and virtual. In an environment that provides an archive of knowledge, we consider continuos synapsis through stimulation of the following components: Leisure, as fields of experiences; Interaction as the areas for exchange of knowledge, and Research as the individual pods of information.

In order to achieve the stimulation, a structural archive is used in a spiral manner providing the potential to increase and interrelate these components.As such, the XXV century library would be the virtual and physical milieu of evolution; a mutualistic urban synapsis stimulated by local users.
