Issue 49 — Toward a Livable Planet

Published

Print Issue #49 SOLD OUT! Please enjoy the online content from the magazine as it becomes available on this page. 

Every day public artists, often in collaboration with other design professionals, are helping to elevate quality of life by turning the places we share—cities, highways, parks, waterways, and neighborhoods—into meaningful, regenerative spaces. We hope the ideas in this issue’s feature articles inspire you to imagine and create a more livable future.
