The demise of a traditional society and the rise of the modern are an unavoidable stream in the era of globalization. It is easily verified that many local areas of developing countries are quickly adopting a dominant globalized development process as they become involved in an international network society; the transformation mostly accompanies the abandonment of their local, but traditional, inestimable space values switching to a modern place that would lose unique originalities the place has been remembered. This study tried to answer two issues: firstly, how should globalization be interpreted in this modern era? Is it a process to adopt the major streams fashioned as globalization? Or is it a process to adapt to its own environment creating their own style evolved from their own needs. Addressing the first question, secondly, this study tried to address with what process these two actions can be reconciled to the globalization of local spaces. This study proposed a Double-A approach to progress to modern network society, which is useful not only for developed local areas, but also more necessary for developing local areas which intend to find the coordinates to attain their development level and, at the same time, maintain their amenity. While the Double-A framework discussed in this study suggests a roadmap to indicate where local areas move toward, the arrival through a Double-A framework should not be understood as the end for local globalization, but the start for new globalization. This is because reconciliation between the developed and the developing, between the space of flows and space of places, and between adoption and adaptation has been proven throughout our history.
