Can excessive programming activate human affection? With the aim of liberating such potential, the project integrates the slower production of knowledge with the faster financial life of the city in a high-rise research centre. In Urban Ganglions order is imposed from top down to activate spontaneous organizations from the bottom up. While providing a fluid infrastructure, it stimulates exchange rather than one-directional transfer, decentralises while gathering and disrupts while ordering.

New patterns of exchange are generated by chance out of excessive programming.
