Magnitudes change in the space and technological development of very large organizations (VLOs). VLOs are a phenomenon of our day, as the built environments of work, public assembly, agriculture, incarceration, trade, travel, education, even death join global financial and communications networks. The planning and infrastructure for these demand logistics, capital and an order of population magnitude that all must accommodate volatile shifts with spatial and computational stability. Adaptability is at the crux of dealing with diverse users or publics and unprecedented technical, cultural, social and ecological challenges; and it is where control can give way to engagement and participation.
