An interview with Lars Lerup on decentralised urbanism in the United Kingdom, United States, and the Netherlands kicks off this issue. It then goes on to explore the many facets of this concept at different scales. What does centrality mean for cities today? It addresses subjects like how “Paris had to be killed to save its homeland”, suburban identities in Frankfurt and Toronto, decentralised consumerism, the periphery as a prime location for radical modernisation, the potential shortfalls of automated vehicles, commuting within metropolises, and rising nomadic populations. With contributions by Michael Wolf, Keller Easterling, Constantina Theodorou and many more. Published by Monu (Rotterdam).
