Issue 2Local-Eyes!

Local-Eyes! explores the role of the 'local' in building the 'local' community. Whether self organized, rallied together by a leader or a leading organization, teams of individuals can be extremely powerful in shaping cities. This issue's articles, part 1 of a two-part issue on bottom-up initiatives, demonstrate this through theory and practice, through explanations of transformations of post-Soviet cities to explications of the Venice Biennale and the Richard Rogers' Inside Out exhibit.

The issue interprets the verb ‘to dwell’ in a wide sense, focusing on pressing issues, and analysing self-managing capacities for and innovation in mixed tenure housing, investigating emerging strategies for collective self-organised and other mixed tenure housing solutions in the UK and across Europe, which were the subject of Future Homes for London, a conference staged at the Royal College of Art in 2018. Central to these themes are the participatory imperatives – a growing feature of 21st century European urbanism.
