Glocal (The Metapolis Dictionary of Advanced Architecture-) –
global and local. simultaneously. Glocal is phenomena,register, devices or information capable of resonating with the local and transferring to the global, capable of being a system and a place at the same time; abstract logic with a singular result. Glocal is any event that responds to the particular and interconnects with the general; that is, of a territory and of many – or all – territories at once: generic and specific. Abstract and concrete. This identity is not only substantial but, above all, relational of the glocal applied to a possible architecture understood, in turn, as a glocal device: capable of generating crosses and interbreedings, recursivities and resonances, multiscalar combinations and transferences. Glocal is able to yield for each concrete situation a certain local map of the global scene.
