Monu #20 Geographical Urbanism


The meaning of physical geography is changing dramatically. Contemporary urbanisation shapes our planet’s surface while we work to correct and improve natural landscapes, proving to what extremes geographies can be manufactured. The phenomenon creates hybrid places in which cities and geographies converge in a multiplicity of narratives, identities and values. Through case studies, essays, photography and more, plus key interviews with Bart Lootsma and Bernardo Secchi, the theme takes centre stage in this issue. With contributions by Nikos Katsikis, Jessica Bridger, Roger Hubeli, Edward Burtynsky, Ryan Dewey, Roger Hubeli, Neyran Turan and more.
