When it comes to urbanism, small things matter, and the various contributors to this issue illuminate this idea further in various ways. Liz Teston, for instance, captures the theme when she writes about the transient micro-urbanisms of protest architecture. Levi Bryant claims how we design things can make a real difference in our lives, both socially and physically. Our cities’ less visible infrastructure is exposed by Julian Oliver, reminding us of our dependence on a deeper physical reality, while Marco Casagrande shows how small-scale interventions can also serve as a design methodology, creating ripple effects and a transformation of the larger urban organism.
