In this paper, we address the integration of a distribution dimension in an architectural approach to system development and evolution based on the separation between coordination and computation. This third dimension allows us to separate key concerns raised by mobility, thus contributing to our ability to handle the complexity that is inherent to systems required to operate in 'Internet time and space'.
