Monu 32: Affordable Urbanism
Publisher: Board Publishers, ISBN 18603211, Format: Softcover magazine, 200 x 270mm, 132pp
The creation of affordable urban spaces – whether for housing, working, infrastructure, or other functions – is a complex issue, as cost considerations must be balanced with important objectives like social usability, sustainability, aesthetics, etc. Moreover, urbanisation and gentrification have become synonymous to such an extent that they seem inescapably paired. The need to create more inclusive and affordable cities is paramount, as is the provision of proper shelter and places for creative and generative endeavour. Interviews with Jörn Walter and Annemie Depuydt and contributions from Will Hartely, Christopher de Vries, and others address these and related topics.
MONU (Magazine on Urbanism) is a unique biannual international forum for architects, urbanists and theorists that are working on urban topics.
