Interim review

Generally speaking, architectural criticism does not deal with half-completed buildings. But in the case of urban planning and development areas that will only be finished in several years’ time it seems reasonable to make an interim critique: what is developing? How successful is the plan itself and how do the processes used to implement it in individual projects actually function? Therefore in this issue we visit incomplete projects, focussing our attention less on the architecture and more on its outline conditions.
