- Summary: The emergence of the increased environment, the result of the overlapping of the digital layer in the physical environment, induces profound changes in the city and in its citizens. The insertion of this digital dimension imposes the modification of the dichotomous boundaries that have traditionally segregated the urban structure. The user tunes the Augmented City by accommodating the topographical structure of the new electronic extension to their living habits. This process of symbiosis of realities produces new urban landscapes whose architectural mapping requires neologisms that coin and categorize those concepts generated by the Augmented City.
- Keywords: Environment, augmented, digital, dichotomy, city.
- Abstract: The emergence of the augmented environment, where the digital layer overlaps the physical environment, procures deep changes in the city and in its inhabitants. The insertion of this digital dimension varies the dichotomous boundaries in which the urban structure has been traditionally segregated. The user tunes the Augmented City fitting the topological structure of the new electronic extension. This process of reality symbiosis produces new landscapes, whose architectonic cartography demands a new language to name and to categorize those concepts generated by the Augmented City.
