The way we work has shifted – emerging technologies, big tech and shared economies have created both opportunity and unexpected outcomes. The center of business is no longer in the city, surpassed by the screen and long-distance working. Yet, work can be relentless, and what are we working for? Together with Open House Melbourne, we spoke to leaders in architecture and urbanism working to create equitable cities. From speculating on the future of the commute, to fighting to close the pay equality gap, women and gender diverse people’s rights to public space, and Indigenous futures, the issue contains the ways in which we are working towards brighter futures for all.
