The city is not only a place of permanencies but also a place of temporalities. Inorder for a city to appear concretely, permanent elements are needed. However, in order for a city to adapt to time, need and wishes, that is, to be in harmony with the 'moment', it always involves a dynamism and temporality. The spaces that are produced - as Lefebvre says, space is a social product - make the actions of society even more valuable within the concept of temporality. This is because, in a certain period of time, the situations that people have created and want to create occur. What they leave behind remains; each creates a sound, track, and effect. In the following examples, how effects and formations can be created in temporary space are discussed. These examples exemplify as an abstract concept: forming consensus, thought flows and social units in social, political and cultural potentials; as a more concrete concept: architecture.

An empty street can create a completely different place with clothes, but it does this in short and frequent periods. These laundries host an urban space beyond the street between two houses. Do those clothesline only make a place for laundry? No. Perhaps that clothesline turn into a structure as 'a bridge of intimacy' with the communication of the neighbors. Neighborhood is a form of socialization and it forms a ground for spiritual solidarity. The informal circle that emerges on this ground is a friendship group. The neighborhood, which is formed thanks to this friendship group, is the characteristic that determines the feature of a human being as a social creature. The clotheslines allow such a relationship to occur, and this urban area creates a communication cycle while continuing its street duty.
