Fall 2016

Street Life

Volume 92, Number 4

For this issue, we assem­bled pieces that glean from the built environ­ment, be it a capital or backwater, a suburb or pop-up village. The backdrops range from Los Angeles to Buenos Aires, from Miami to Col­orado Springs. What links them are variations on the theme of civic engagement, as well as the idea that the public sphere contains its own imaginative force, born of agitation and a sense of order, imagination and goodwill. Altogether, the takeaway is as much about models for governing as where to find the sublime.

San Salvador’s upstart mayor, Nayib Bukele, has promised a new way forward for a city besieged by decades of violence. His biggest obstacle, however, may not be the city’s gangs, but the city’s idea of itself.
