Inner-Urban Landscapes - Magazine.01


In this magazine, students of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) jointly explore, analyse, and theorise different ways of conceptualising the city and emerging urban phenomena. The contributions are grouped around the notion of “inner-urban landscapes”. The students’ work is related to an ongoing research project at the Chair of Sustainable Urbanism (TUM), which includes a research and teaching collaboration with the Gennadius Library of the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, as well as the School of Architecture at NTUA. The project is sponsored by the Schwarz Foundation in Munich and Athens.
The cities of Athens and Munich provided the backdrop for the students’ observations and theorising. In this way, they could either conduct research at their doorsteps or draw on work and experiences made during previous field trips. The combination of direct, personal experiences and digital communication defined the working process for the production of this magazine.
