Terreform Center for Advanced Urban Research is excited to announce its publication imprint, UR (Urban Research), this May! Understanding that no single approach is adequate to the promise and problem of the urban, our goal is to get the word out about solutions exceeding the imaginative reach of official planning and design, to encourage vigorous debate, and to become a key venue for disseminating ideas.

“We are thrilled that UR is making its debut, and look forward to adding a broad new avenue for dissemination and debate about our urbanizing planet. Our goal is to offer a supportive home to critical and visionary ideas about the future of the world’s cities and we hope to become a valued resource to people and organizations striving to create sustainable, equitable, and beautiful environments. We welcome proposals for projects from all who share these goals.” -- Michael Sorkin, President of Terreform and Editor in Chief of UR

The first six titles, written and edited by urban scholars, academics, architects and researchers in the fields of urban design, architecture, landscape architecture, urban geography, and political science, explore diverse subjects ranging from expansion of urban universities and speculations on a changed world to critical fantastical readings on modernity: Gowntown: A 197-X Plan For Upper Manhattan, Waterproofing New York, 2100: A Dystopian Utopia / The City After Climate Change, Adventures in Modernism: Thinking With Marshall Berman, Beyond The Square: Urbanism and the Arab Uprisings, and Mahometan & Celestial’s Encyclopedic Guide to Modernity.

Seek out our books in their full textual and visual glory at URPUB.ORG.
