This is the catalog to the 5th International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam: Making City held from 19 April to 31 October 2012 in Rotterdam / Almere / São Paulo / Istanbul

How is city made? That is the issue at the heart of the 5th IABR: Making City. Ongoing urbanization is creating enormous political, social, economic, and ecological challenges, challenges that manifest themselves in our cities, which is also where we will have to find solutions. No cities, no future. And our cities can only guide us to a better future if we do a better job of designing, planning, and governing them.

The 5th IABR: Making City is therefore issuing a call to all involved - administrators, policymakers, politicians, entrepreneurs, designers, and citizens: If making city is what we have to do, we have to change how we do so: by building strong alliances, by formulating an urban agenda, and by putting design first.
