The Urban Transcripts Journal

Welcome to our first issue!


Online and published quarterly, The Urban Transcripts Journal aims to unravel the complexity of the City through a synergy of verbal and visual content. Our core mission is to advance a multitude of knowledges of the City, formulated through creative media, research inquiry, urban design and planning practice. We are particularly committed to promoting original work by young researchers, professionals, and creatives, including postgraduate and PhD students. Beyond the traditional article format the journal publishes work in a variety of formats and media, bringing together theory and practice in a creative, analytical, and critical discourse on the city; an urban transcript where the arts and the sciences of the city complement and confront one-another.
