The architect and city planner, Derek Walker, guest edits this issue which focuses on how different cultures deal with planning and politics for new towns. It includes an introduction, historic summary and a discussion about the English garden city, by the Danish architecture critic, Eiler Rasmussen. Michael Brett provides an overview and discusses the late 1960s and circumstances that made ambitious planning intervention possible. John de Monchaux writes the commentary with emphasis upon America, France, Australia, South America, Japan and Saudi Arabia. An essay by James Gowan on "the ones that got away", looks at schemes by Foster, Stirling, MacCormac, Evans and Shalev, Arup Associates and Derek Walker that might have broadened the architectural culture of the city and provided a countrbalance to the 1980s. Finally, city planner, Martin Richardson, looks at housing and villages and the successes and failures in building communities.
