The city through filters
To document and discuss urban life through filters of popular culture and specific communities
File under

Filter is a magazine that looks at urban spaces through the ‘filters’ applied to them by different communities – some more visible or valued than others, but each intrinsic to urban life. Each issue will focus on how a certain community views and interacts with these spaces, and how this shapes notions of ownership and belonging.

The first 4 issues will explore markets, skateboarding, karaoke and football, taking as a starting point the spatial manifestation of places and people connected to each. Through interviews and firsthand contributions, the magazine will document distinct layers of urban life in detail. It will reveal varied viewpoints on what defines a town or city, and individuals’ and communities’ hopes for their future.

Filter aims to open up discussions on architecture and urbanism outside professional/academic frameworks. Using a lens of popular culture, it hopes to enable people to better understand the stake we share as participants in urban life.
