What role does storytelling play in urban imaginaries? How do these imaginaries converge or diverge from reality? Can we use stories to test ideas for future architecture? This volume brings together commissioned writing in fiction and non-fiction, graphic stories, illustrations, and interviews, narrating buildings, housing estates, and cities, between utopias and dystopias, through imagination, dreaming, magic, games and concrete realities, across past and present, and into the future. Contributors include acclaimed international writers: Ben Okri, Sophie Mackintosh, Adania Shibli, and Alia Trabucco Zerán.
