In a new double issue, 32BNY traces the modern urban trajectories of Russia and China, mapping their connections, divergences, and potential futures.
From the legacy of Russia in the 1920s, to the volatile architectural energy of China today, 32 revisits what had once seemed irrefutable binaries: communism and capitalism, east and west, history and progress.

Issue 5/6 includes:
Irene Cheng on the New Silk Road
Bart Goldhoorn on Capitalist Realism
Rob Gregory on Catherine Cooke and the state of Moscow's modern architecture
Leo Ou-fan Lee on Shanghai circa 1930
Peter Lynch on El Lissitsky
Thomas de Monchaux on Melnikov's House
Shrinking Cities on Ivanovo
Slavoj Zizek on Lenin and freedom today
