Monu 29: Narrative Urbanism
This issue opens with an interview with Cassim Shepard in which he talks about creating a better general culture of understanding around architecture, urban design, and urban development issues by using all of the narrative tools we have at our disposal. For instance, collective walks through lost parts of cities, as suggested by Nick Dunn and Dan Dubowitz, or by observing people’s stories and involving them in creative processes, depicted in Carolyn Drake’s photo-essay. This can even change the urban dynamics, says Kathleen Gmyrek, thereby leading to participatory narratives, while OMA’s Inge Goudsmit reminds us that architects are great storytellers, too.
