From the Ideal City to the Domestic Dream. Arquitectura Viva celebrates its 250th issue with a special edition that presents utopias as an optimistic alternative to the dim panorama marked by economic decline, epidemic threats, and the devastation of war, all this in the context of a climate emergency.
Luis Fernández-Galiano makes a revision of different notions of the ideal city without forgetting about the dangers looming over them; the collective Dogma reflects on urban villas as feasible housing proposals grounded on 'commoning'; and James Bradford DeLong presents his thesis on a long 20th century during which humanity has pursued its utopias of freedom and prosperity.
