Virtual networks create a real digital universe (Lévy, 1996) and produce an aesthetic-cultural image in Rio de Janeiro occupied, since 2017 by the federal military forces of the Law and Order Guarantee (GLO). The urban participatory space - defined by the action of a new middle class articulated by networks and by the joint knowledge of academics, artists, hackers and activists(Lafuente,2012) - establishes a language of citizenship created by the multifaceted world of common goods in the political participatory street movements. There is also the establishment of a productive chain of products and events that indicate a new creative economy of the “carioca”(natural or inhabitant of Rio de Janeiro) culture in the Continuous|Occupied City. Within a transcultural logic (Guimaraens,2016) related to the transformations occurring in the junction of distinct cultures, the scope of academic knowledge in architecture and urbanism extend the discussion to the field of philosophy, anthropology and digital technologies to find viable solutions to the impasse of Brazilian and Latin American megacities regarding the occupation of the public space.
