Built Environment Journal
If you’ve found Unstructured’s piece on Stuttgart 21 and its connections to larger European projects of interest you may well find the recently published edition of the Built Environment Journal could also (in the spirit of Amazon) “be of interest.” Volume 38 focuses entirely on Railway Station Mega-Projects and the Re-Making of Inner Cities in Europe, under the shared editorship of Deike Peters, from University of Southern California and Johannes Novy, at TU Berlin. Reading the first three essays, it became evident that these Mega-Rail projects are an area of relatively scarce scholarship, which the editors hoped the issue of Built Environment will plug. And also how Stuttgart 21 is a huge controversy in their chosen academic field of study. Which is rather surprising.
