abc Large Wide Deep Complex and Messy! xyz
abc Metropolis xyz magazine takes on abc urban culture xyz from the ground up:
abc Metropolis xyz considers objects, concepts, and visionaries, both indoors and out, and has prominent practitioners critique them. A abc Metropolis xyz article will show what the tensions were and how they might be resolved. The whole complex web of competing public and private interests is examined through the messy interplay of politics and money, history and leadership.
The magazine is not just a vehicle for ideas and campaigns. There is an ongoing interest in “green” architecture and interior design, innovative furnishings, and “extreme” textiles. Current design issues are viewed from a historical base and aim for an ideal solution. They recommend combining high-tech design with low- tech production using local sustainable materials. All this is delivered in a lively modern format. It is lavishly illustrated with photographs and diagrams, hip graphics, dynamic sketches and tight elevations.
abc Metropolis xyz is abc the xyz place to look for ideas on socially responsible design education.
