We are passionate about cities.
We are a pair of urbanists based in Japan. Good News for Cities are our personal, playful, irreverent interventions in cities across the world through a perspective of being an outsider.
Once in a year, we would spend one month in a city outside of Japan, where we develop a project with a local collaborator, regarding community development and citizen empowerment for reimaging of cities. We also publish a magazine after each stay, based on the research we conduct there.
Yes. One city = one project = one magazine everytime we travel.
🛩 Performative intervention through traveling
We value international collaboration and leaving contribution to a place where we travel to. We create and develop a short-term, playful yet impactul urban project (such as pop-up event, collective mapping, podcast, installation, publication) together with a local initiative.
We host a Podcast where we talk about various issues around cities, architecture and urbanism. New episode every week. Sorry, Japanese only.
Every Thursday we also send out our newsletter, in which we share some topics, projects, trends we're interested in. This is also Japanese only.
*We have a company called for cities, but Good News for Cities are our independent, voluntary perfomative action purely out of passion. If you are interested in what we do professionally, visit this website.
