Social conditions of contemporary metropolises are rapidly deteriorating. Moreover, the physical framework with which we interact often reduces the possibility of spontaneous encounters. The transition to a sustainable future will require society to enact profound changes in many spheres, such as economy, politics, education... Urbanism and architecture can only contribute. The project aims to investigate this contribution. In order to fully comprehend why the aforementioned phenomenon is occur- ring, how they can be overcome and where they are manifested, a collage of relevant opinions has been created. This form of theoretical background encourages further and repeated interpretations. Considering that the topic of inquire is in itself ephemeral, what should be done, should be as such. As a possible solution, the project proposes a creation of a virtual and a physical platform, who's use would result in reinforced social relations.
