What role does storytelling play in urban imaginaries? How do these imaginaries converge or diverge from reality? Can we use stories to test ideas for future architecture? Concrete and Ink: Storytelling and the Future of Architecture, the first volume in the series Staging Cities, brings together commissioned writing in fiction and non-fiction, a graphic story, and interviews, narrating buildings, housing estates and cities, between utopias and dystopias, through imagination, dreaming, magic, games and concrete realities, across past and present, and into the future.
