With this issue, Shinkenchiku-sha inaugurates a new series entitled “Place + Urbanism.” This series will explore the changing face of the city, presenting a perspective that goes beyond individual projects.

The “Place” in the series title refers to more than simply locations in the city. It looks toward the character that defines neighborhoods as places that support the lives and activities of the people who live and work in them. By “Urbanism,” the series understands not only top-down urban planning but also bottom-up planning in the form of shared ideals of life in the city.

The inaugural issue in this series, “Place + Urbanism — City: Ever Evolving,” is published as volume 116 of JA. This issue introduces changes taking place against this multifarious background in 21 cities around the world.

JA 116 Place + Urbanism — City: Ever Evolving includes:
