‘Living Cities: Tropical Imaginaries’ Special Issue Part 1

This special issue of eTropic concerns living cities in the tropics and how they are conceived through the imagination. The collection of papers reminds us that metropolises are both created and creative spaces concerned with peopled and lived experiences and their interaction with cultural, material, and natural environments. The issue is interested in processes of tropical space and place-making, with an emphasis on key areas that make up lived cities in the tropics: architecture, design, creative industries and economies, circular economy, neoliberalism, displacement, heritage, urban myths, narratives, cultural and natural landscapes, sustainable practices, and everyday life.
