Like a Peer-to-Peer framework - a network of 'Casitas' (small houses) are centralised with public resources - a relatively low number of services (gardens, theatre, a greenhouse, food bank...) provide the core value to the functionality of the plaza. One can share content, space and experience. The ownership of such a 'Casita' directly feeds back to the plaza as tool to be involved, and to share. A licence to be active.
