Issue 7


Tvergastein is now accepting submissions for its next issue:
Deadline: December 15, 2015

Inclusive. Safe. Resilient. Sustainable.

These are the goals which the UN has directed toward cities in order to cope with the increasingly urbanized population of the globe.

But how can such an abstract vision act as a blueprint for cities of the future? What does such a vision say – or fail to say – about the processes that shape urban areas, the diversity of people and places that make up the world’s cities and the challenges they face? What entails a sustainable or resilient city? Whose safety is prioritized?

Tvergastein Issue 7 is now open for contributions to an interdisciplinary  exploration of the forces and factors that inform patterns of urban development. Understanding these is surely a precursor to knowing how to make cities socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable, hence the question: how are cities made?
