CITY ISSUES
Mx.org: The Industrial Commons / Despo Thoma with Thad Pawlowski & Amritha Mahesh
Jobs are growing in New York. So is the cost of living. Communities are displaced, identities are uprooted.  But does growth have to mean displacement? Is there a way to encourage job production while distributing the value increase in the cost of land to the working people in the neighborhood? Current zoning policies and real estate forces produce a very specific pattern of development: a monoculture of profit-making engines for the ones who can invest in them. Is there a way to grow with greater equity?

Højderne - ''the Heights'' or a New Approach on the Neighborhood / Nathan Romero
Editor: Anthi Rozi
A NEW NEIGHBORHOOD: 
How can we incorporate nature into architecture, not as a part of a generic “program” but as experience intimately related to life? Nature can be a daily call, reminding us of a timeless knowledge. A call to rediscover what it has always been there and yet appears different everyday: the sea, the horizon, the trees, the clouds. The design of a new neighborhood in Humlebæk must listen to the earth that holds it, must insist in incorporating new parameters other than economy, mobility..etc. 
Turning our eyes into the foundational values of nature should be done without nostalgia: we do know now that good cities can make us free, complete. In this new addition to Humlebæk we have a unique opportunity to combine both worlds, nature and the city. Louisiana has shown us a way. Louisiana invites us to listen, reflect and contemplate. These are introverted, intimate experiences, but they occur in an environment that is eminently public. Its architecture invites us to a reflective pause that accompanies and favors experience. Our new Humlebæk neighborhood should also aspire to be a privileged place to witness the raise and fall of the sun, the flow of seasons.

Editor: Anthi Rozi
"Cities are a big deal," says de Botton. "We pretty much all have to live in them. We should try hard to get them right"—in part, by a more "scientific" approach to what makes cities pretty or ugly.
The philosopher, author, and founder of London's The School of Life lays out six qualities of attractive cities:

Monocle 24: the Urbanist Examines the Impact of the Department Stores
Editor: Anthi Rozi
Department stores have redefined the shopping habits of many but what impact did they actually have in the city when they first appeared? We look at the history of the London department store and head to Paris to explore France’s first, Le Bon Marché. We also discover that Istanbul’s old hans are a century-old department store equivalent. Plus: we meet Jerry Storch, CEO of Hudson’s Bay Company.

TJORBÖRN ANDERSSON WITH SWECO ARCHITECTS DESIGN HYLLIE PLAZA IN MALMÖ, SWEDEN
Editor: Anthi Rozi
Hyllie plaza is a city square, designed as a stylized beech forest which is put in a floor of high finish. 28 grown-up beech trees have been planted in 12 slits cut into solid granite. To get the sensitive tree species of  beech thrive in such artificial condition, the sub terrain of the plaza was made into a research project  resulting in a very large structural soil which also includes pumice, mycorrhiza and charcoal.

NON-SPACE: THE COLLAPSE OF THE CITY AS A COMMODITY (ENG)
Anthi Rozi
The short documentary ''Non-space: The Death of the City as Commodity'', presents some of the destructive results caused by construction-oriented economy. Despite the fact that this strategy benefits plenty of countries, whose wealth and employment is strongly connected with buildings and infrastructure, other countries suffer in multiple levels and this has to be taken into serious consideration in the future.

ALAIN DE BOTTON: LONDON IS BECOMING A BAD VERSION OF DUBAI
Editor: Anthi Rozi
Alain de Botton, Swiss writer, philosopher, and television presenter who currently lives in the United Kingdom, explains why in his opinion London is turning into a very unpleasant city for someone to live in. The renowned author of the bestsellers including How Proust Can Change Your Life (1997), Status Anxiety (2004) and The Architecture of Happiness (2006), claims that ''property developers and the mayor's office commit crimes against beauty to create fun buildings''.

KOSTAS POULOPOULOS / COPENHAGEN, A CITY FOR CHILDREN / DESIGN LAB SHOW 2015 ATHENS
Editor: Anthi Rozi
Kostas Poulopoulos, senior architect at BIG in this presentation, refers to how Copenhagen is dealing with its overall design according to children's needs.  
 
Children are the most vulnerable users of the city. At the same time, they are the most important users, because they represent the future of a city. We, the people,  fundamentally design in order to protect ourselves from unpleasant situations and foremost to fulfill our objectives, which are desired situations.
