#59 Spring 2019

What can be changed through the twists and tweaks of design, architecture, technology, infra-structure, economics, or daily routines? How can the way we eat, learn, dress, live, and talk be a way to renew ourselves, and so too our society, from the ground up? Given that a different present is almost impossible to imagine and utopia is currently out of reach, in this issue we look at the non-heroic ways of doing things differently that can open our minds and make the world better.
