A soft architecture changes shape when needed. The web is a soft architecture. Walls can be put up or taken down without physical effort and zoning. Social networks are defined by soft architectures, in which inside and outside often change places. Wikis are a form of soft architecture because they are both structured and expandable. Every edit changes a Wiki, and the shape of that Wiki shapes how the next person edits it.
