Issue 1: Coherence and Urban Form

“Instead of a disciplinary default, we must question why coherence is necessary at the scale of a city and if such a goal is achievable today.”
— Neeraj Bhatia, Editorial

“One of the major problems that architecture has to confront today is to radically rethink the relationship between collective and individual life becausethis relationship today is completely collapsed to the point that we are neither collective, nor individual.”
— Pier Vittorio Aureli, partner of DOGMA, Professor at the AA and Yale University

“I think architecture should definitely have a political role. It is up to us, architects and universities, to imagine and to study the possible and the inevitable.”
— Xaveer De Geyter, principal and founder of Xaveer De Geyter Architects (XDGA)
