In continuation with my documentary project Describing Urban Changes on Baku in
2008 I guest-edited and wrote an article for this StadtBauwelt
issue on Baku, published in September 2009. My co-editing work
included recruiting the co-authors, selection and composition of
the articles and facilitation of the "site visit" together with
chief editor Felix Zwoch and photographer Erik-Jan Ouwerkerk.
My own article on the temporary character of the Caspian metropolis
can be downloaded in German here.
Bauwelt is a renowned German architecture and urban planning
magazine. Apart from its weekly appearance, there is a special
edition three to four times a year that portraits a city. This
issue comprehends about 80 pages and contains articles by mostly
local authors on urban planning, architecture and urban
(sub-)culture of their city.
