Time to dream. A summer plan for anyone after a better quality of life, from a new HQ to a nicer home. Plus, our annual Quality of Life survey.
Which are the best cities in the world to call home – and more importantly, why? As we seek out the perfect mix of businesses, brands and people building better neighbourhoods, our bumper July/August issue has the answers.
Elsewhere in the issue we meet agenda-setting mayors, draft a resident’s rulebook for creating more harmonious communities and pinpoint a few pioneering parks. We also visit a magnificent Merano residence, sit down for a feast with illustrator Christoph Niemann in Berlin and find out the future of footwear. That’s all before cooling off with a rundown of the best urban rivers to dive into, drink beside and delight in.
