For some, nature is the new urban. But if cities would be brave enough to be cities again, that would be my wonderland. This issue gives some hints of its form. Cities as forests not in terms of nature, but of navigation and justice. Vertical cities freed from their past, floating in latent memories. A highway unfolding vistas to our escapist mind. Systems of transit constructing the sense of place. And us, more eager than ever to explore. Yet, this time, slowly. The issue of paradoxes.
