Talking about participation is always taking into account economics, capitals and resources. Who can participate? How citizens can afford time and space resources to participate? We don¿t like to speak about participation rather than collective processes of empowerment. Connecting the personal and the social, a different analysis of the relations between the public sphere and the domestic space is needed. There is an emergent new collective realm based on networks opening and distributing domestic practices within the city. These processes are developed as extitucional informal processes around the house, revealing other forms of urban and citizen assemblages in Madrid. Studies on the urban citizen organization have not developed a system to explain the different modes and processes as a movement-rhizome formed around the housing. It is the purpose of this research to explain and track how they are formed, how they operate in the city, how the action enables trading and how other non econonomical capitals are at stake in this process. The article investigates the different modes in which the creation of citizen networks not come only from public space and squares but also from finantial negociations, banks, housing and bodies. House is not any more an individual, particular and intimate space. That is the main teaching that the Mortage citizens¿ platform show us in Madrid. The empowerment citizen initiative PaH and all the citizen initiatives around the access to housing perform another urbanism as an extitutional process. Madrid is also today a collective laboratory around the house.
