Urban Realm front cover
  • Sir David Adjaye
    RIBA Gold Medal winner Sir David Adjaye is on a planet-wide mission to enable architecture to rediscover local context, social value and sustainability through a nomadic approach that emphasises living off the land in a literal sense. We unpack Adjaye’s win and assess what it means for a planetary practice.
  • Allan Murray Design
    The opening of the St James Quarter is a big moment for Edinburgh but also neatly sums up the success of one practice, Allan Murray Architects, in reshaping the city. Now, with its creative force and figurehead departing for Allan Murray Design we ask how a more explorative ideas based practice can frame future urban placemaking.
  • Daisy Narayanan
    The City of Edinburgh Council has found a figurehead in the softly spoken form of Daisy Narayanan to guide the city toward the promised land of a carbon-neutral future by 2030. As senior manager for mobility and placemaking Narayanan will fuse landscape and transport to bring people closer during an era of social distancing.
  • Landscape Architecture
    We have all had our eyes opened to the importance of greenery, light and air for wellbeing so what is being done to reinforce a landscape-led recovery? We speak to six leading practices to see how the profession is working with communities to create human-centric spaces which also build biodiversity, encourage use and make all our lives that bit more pleasant.
  • Tamsie Thomson
    Urban Realm catches up with newly installed rias chief executive Tamsie Thomson to find out what the climate crisis and post-pandemic future mean for a profession ready and willing to provide solutions. Setting her sights on the global stage Thomson is evangelical about building Scottish architecture as an international brand at the forefront of recovery and renewal.
  • What If...?
    Scotland’s contribution to the 2021 Venice Biennale is a homegrown affair in more ways than one. It explores how we can live together at a time when we have all been pushed apart by casting previous boundaries and constraints aside.
  • Archizines
    The digital revolution has hit publishing harder than most but in a sector evolving by the day grassroots journalism continues to thrive in print. We round up the best architecture zines from Glaspaper to Matzine, Crumble and -ism to prove that when it comes to getting your message across wood pulp is still in a class of its own.
