Taking inspiration from the cities-based dialogue around the Naomi Milgrom Foundation’s Living Cities Forum, their latest print issue, themed ‘Metropolis’, looks at people, ideas and movements that are shaping the way we live as local and global citizens – from global citizens of architecture OMA, via tiny houses in Los Angeles, to deliberative planning in Melbourne. Progressive action is possible and enactable at a local level – and it has far-reaching symbolic and practical power.
