nomad Issue 13 – Optimism
nomad is a magazine that promotes issues concerning quality of life, sustainability and society by curating the ideas of a growing global creative community. Inspired by the forward thinking approaches of creative visionaries, eco-pioneers, artists, authors, architects, entrepreneurs and designers worldwide, nomad magazine seeks out new perspectives to shape our local and global life towards a valuable future. In this sense, we are all nomads.
In this issue, we focus on the silver linings on the horizon of the paradigm shift – as we seek to identify its indicators, trace its background and anticipate its implications: nomad 13. We ask ourselves where these changes will take us, and talk to those who are addressing future issues on a daily basis and envisioning solutions for the long run: architects, designers, artists, scientists. Amongst them: Bjarke Ingels with ‘Plan for the Planet’, Anab Jain and Jon Ardern from London design studio Superflux, architect and mayor Përparim Rama, Amy Franceschini on modesty and wisdom as part of the solution, Courtenay Smith on ‘houses that can save the world’, and many more interviews and thoughts that spark optimism and illuminate our view into the future.
