Desired Landscapes is an independent magazine reading into a diverse mix of cities. Each issue explores the sense of a place and the visual representation of the urban experience. It is a pocket-sized collection of person-to-place bonds, urban observations, and poetic snapshots, seen through the eyes of people who write the stories of today’s cities.

This research expands to further printed matter having the city as a source, such as maps and guidebooks, but also to walking tours and urban research workshops for both locals and tourists. 

We offer our expertise to institutions, universities, schools and companies for sample or tailor-made inquiries in more cities.  

Currently running: the walking tour ATHENS WALKTHROUGH, which emerged of the mapping of the guidebook INTO STOAS in 2015.

Upcoming: the walking tour HOTEL VILLAGE, conceived as a prequel to the upcoming issue of Desired Landscapes, curated for the Milano Design Film Festival.
