“I’m always interested in moving in the direction that my curiosity is taking me. It’s not about fame or fortune. You are probably at your best when you take on something new.“
— Elizabeth Diller, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, New York

Cash and the City

This first issue the new magazine "FAST FORWARD" is devoted to the complex interplay between cities and money. Until a few months ago, skyrocketing land and property prices around the world and their impact on society were omnipresent in the public debate. As of this printing, much is overshadowed by the Covid-19 pandemic. But it has not made any of these issues less relevant. Indeed, our living and working environments are changing even faster, as is the transformation of our inner cities. The global population is growing, and urban flight is not an option for the broad masses. We need concepts for dense, liveable, mixed cities that consume fewer resources in the future than they do today. City and money. Who are we building for? And why? What does quality mean for a building; what does liveability mean for a city? Can it be calculated? How is urban planning possible when money is scarce? How can all sides contribute to the common good?

With contributions by Buromoscow, Reinier de Graaf, Elizabeth Diller, Sergei Gordeev, Jan Grarup, Franz-Josef Höing, Ulrich Höller, Tobias Sauerbier, Matthias Standfest, Christiane Thalgott, Erion Veliaj, Torben Bayer.

Magazine for Urbanism, Architecture, Real Estate and Future

FAST FORWARD is the first magazine for the German-speaking area that addresses the big questions about the future of the city at the interface between architecture and the real estate industry.
Inspired by the Architecture Matters conference, diverse voices—from the creative to the economic—can have their say. Contrasting opinions are welcomed, rather than feared. What drives us are the big questions—we are curious and freethinking, in search of those who are making a mark on the world.
