summary The paper aims for new urban forms of property enabled by computation models of distributed ledgers as they are currently being deployed with technologies like Blockchain. Distributed ledgers promise to constitute whole environments by chaining and sharing blocks of data. Upscaling this prospective, the paper describes objects with unique and strong compositional characteristics that act as closed black boxes and are able through distribution to create large scale effects. The final result of the nesting is the Interchain, a chain of chains that initiate with the characteristics of the contributing chains, and due to the distribution, unprecedented patterns arise. The resulting Interchain, observed with spatial and architectural characteristics, can project a new building form and a new urban model based on blockchain theory.
