topos - The International Review of Landscape Architecture and Urban Design

topos - The International Review of Landscape Architecture and Urban Design - focuses on landscape architecture and increasingly on architecture and urban planning. It sees itself as an interdisciplinary think tank aimed at addressing the challenges urban areas will face in future. The professional magazine strives to inspire planning practitioners, urban experts and professionals who shape the cities of tomorrow. Every issue of the periodical, which is published quarterly, is dedicated to a different topic and deals with a broad array of projects and planning work in countries all over the world.

The current issue of topos:

The famous French sociologist and urban researcher Henri Lefèbvre was born on 16 June 120 years ago. His Right to the City, written in 1968, is a classic and at the same time a fundamental work for every urbanist. This anniversary is taken up by topos: Exactly on June 16, issue 115, which focuses on the topic of the Right to the City, was published.

What does the Right to the City imply? Who owns the city? Who struggles for open space, for participation, for greenery, for resources? Which dynamics have global urbanization processes set in motion? What are the consequences of the increasing commodification of urban spaces? The topos issue on Right to the City opens up a space full of possibilities – while also discussing threats and consequences that accompany it.
