‘Dwell in possibility’, the next issue of Urbanista.org is due to be released in spring 2019. ‘Dwell in possibility’ interprets the verb ‘to dwell’ in a wide sense, focusing on pressing issues, 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, and participatory imperatives of 21st century European urbanism and its interdependencies.

The issue investigates the state of social housing in the UK and liveable urbanism more widely, through interviews with Karakusevic Carson Architects‘ mixed use and tenure housing design in London; architects Darryl Chen (Hawkins\Brown); Adam Khan and Mexico City-based Francisco Pardo; and architect and academic Mariangiulia Bennicelli Pasqualis (partner, ipostudioarchitetti srl) on the European project PROFICIENT, led by 17 different collaborating partners across the EU responding to the EU-wide trend for collective self-organised (CSO) housing processes boosting the quality and scale of energy-efficient buildings and districts.

What certain prerogatives of 21st century urbanism are non-negotiable? We discuss the contribution of a range of events staged over the last few years including Mobilising the Periphery #5: Europe, ANCB, Berlin (2018); the Nordic Urban Lab (Helsinki/Espoo, 2018); Cities for All: Gentrification, Public Space and the Tools of Placemaking, Stockholm, 2018; and RTPI’s 2017 UK planning overview, London. What kinds of new relationships can be fostered between ports and their hinterlands, and between cities, ports and their territories of water, can be shaped? A report from the Port City Talks Antwerp-Istanbul exhibition, MAS, Antwerp, part of the Europalia biennial there (2015-16).
