MONU 35 : Unfinished Urbanism

ISBN: 18603211-35

25.20

“Unfinishedness” is probably most strikingly represented in works of art, but this issue of ‘MONU’ aims to investigate the concept through architecture and urbanism. By addressing its many different facets, from cities to regions and interiors, and looking beyond the physical structures and architecture to examine the economic, political, ecological, and social aspects of cities, it seeks to discover the potential as well as the shortcomings of the unfinished. In this sense, “unfinished urbanism” is a truly global topic. Despite some success stories, most unfinished structures remain as symbols of decay, financial hurdles, or corruption in cities, often leading to further challenges.
