  • Social Control and Imaginary Architecture



  • The exponential growth within the unreal space of the Internet has raised many issues about the application of metaphors to the spaces both constructed and unconstructed. The unproblematic adoption of terms and beliefs from real-space risk duplicating the power structures of the real onto the not-yet-formed. This paper examines the processes and potential outcomes of these vectors, and what reference they have to previous imaginary spaces within the civic environment.
