The concept hybrid city here responds to a series of real demands of liveability in cities in an information society as it integrates the physical and the virtual in an "augmented" reality. As it can be seen, the everyday use of ICT and virtual social networks transform our perception of reality so that our physical environment gets enriched with new properties, with new layers of meaning that shape our imagination. In this sense, the social and psychological effects that affect the user of the "Augmented Environment " draw a new map of habitability, still in a training process. The city turned into a place of hybridization overlaps the digital layer in the existing city and in the households inferring symptoms of delocalization to the different modes of inhabiting on the one hand, while on the other, it strengthens emerging local ways to coexist. Therefore, new types of spaces are created outside established and purely disciplinary channels of architecture and urbanism. They have a common denominator. They are processes of an "hybrid" nature between the physical and the digital that are beginning to have an extreme interest among disciplines intervening in urban areas as well as in the regulatory framework that governs it. This innovation is primarily based on the creation of social life and political culture. New generation spaces, often at the border between the need and the creativity of their "users" are born in the moment when people act together. Most of the time, they are outside cultural policies, and moreover, they act in substitution and because of the lack of them. We are, undoubtedly, facing a social revolution based on interoperability, on projects and strategies based on the user and for the user through internet and different web applications. These tools, that are usually available for free, facilitate information sharing enable the undertaking of initiatives, that would not be possible otherwise, promote participation and collaboration on projects as well as intervention in governmental projects, and generate new communication and relationship¿s dynamics, able to improve the cohesion of local communities. Digital relationships call face to face ones and the perspective of community and collective action that transform encountered situations and consolidated urban environment is generated in the network. The communication that we propose for this conference aims to study these new emerging hybridization phenomena that take place in the urban space.
