In addressing urgent matters such as sustainability, climate, and social integration, the design and planning world has no simple solutions. This uncertainty can be seen not as a problem, but as a source of inspiration, which is the theme of this issue in its examination of a variety of initiatives and projects from around the globe in two dossiers: “Crossing the Line” and “Beauty”. Further, Arna Mačkić makes the case for architects to become fully engaged in post-conflict reconstruction of cities, a photo essay on refugee camps by Sebastian Wells, Thomas Sieverts writes on reinterpreting the city as an oasis for biodiversity in the agricultural desert of the future, and more.

DOSSIERS
UNCERTAINTY
How can we deal with unpredictability in urban planning and design? What kinds of tools and techniques are needed. What shifts in thinking?
‘Accepting uncertainty reduces waste for everyone involved in sustainable planning and design processes.’
BEAUTY
The theme is perhaps the most important building block in our discipline: beauty. What is it? What makes it so difficult to talk about? Why is it so elusive?
‘I experience beauty as something exciting, moving and inspiring, which then becomes a catalyst for connection.’
ESSAY
THE CITY AS OASIS by Thomas Sieverts
The encroachment of wild plants and animals into the urban landscape – reinterpreting and redesigning the city as a Noah’s Ark for biodiversity in a world of shrinking species numbers.
PHOTO ESSAY
UTOPIA by Sebastian Wells
Striking impressions of refugee camps between Africa and Europe.
PORTRAITS
Architect Arna Mačkić, born in Yugoslavia, is partner in the Dutch based office Studio LA. Many of their projects are concerned with mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion, refugees, collective identity and the public domain.
‘They are a connecting voice, healing the wounds of the past without brushing away the scars.’
REVIEWS
SECRET GARDENS
Hidden gardens in Amsterdam (NL), Copenhagen (DK), New York (USA), Venice Lagoon (IT) and Weggis (CH).
You can’t get in, but they are there. To look at, or to dream about. They tell stories, and have meaning.
