An international collective of urbanists and ideas for urban change
for Cities is an online platform where emerging practitioners in the field of urbanism (architects, urban planners, civil activists, policy makers, researchers, artists, journalists, and more) can showcase their projects, practices, and ideas which focus on Asian cities. It functions as a repository of urban solutions and inspiration.
We host global campaigns for cities
Our campaigns are bottom-up collective actions for urban change. They're all about giving a voice to those who have been overlooked by the mainstream urban practices. We gather urban practices from across Asia and showcase them — making them accessible to everyone, and creating new cross-cultural alliances. Selected ideas will be featured in our annual exhibition, and we help emerging talents get other opportunities to promote and accelerate thier practices.
More campaigns releasing soon!
In October 2021, the for Cities exhibition will present, test, and practice the ideas submitted through our campaigns. The exhibition will be held simultaneously in multiple Asian cities for a period of one week, and will include events, workshops, meetups, and short term projects to connect members of the for Cities network and discover new talent to take collective action.
