Edito: Do the Poor and the Middle-Class Still Have Room in the City?

Text: Ştefan Ghenciulescu

[…] I would like to be very clear here: cities have always been territories of inequality.

But the city has always ”welcomed” its immigrants in well-prepared places, far from its “rightful” inhabitants, often transforming itself from the land of promise into the land of need. In the illusion that the possibilities are infinite, the city shapes its continuous need for growth and manufactures new obstacles in the journey of overcoming its own condition. […]
