Published by Foreign Policy Design Group, Critical Mass is a biannual magazine that explores a brand’s ripple effect across the globe, from patterns in consumer spending to environmental implications. Packaged in a handy format, it combines quality cultural writing with intelligent design to showcase how a brand’s living legacies extend beyond mere aesthetics and profit margins, particularly in the ever-changing face of global consumerism.
Their second issue explores how individuals, businesses, designers and cities are responding to the rise of co-living as a major global trend. The world needs housing that encourages community, smart density and affordability – is co-living the solution? By examining the repackaging of space as service, tracing the historical origins of the WeLive model and discussing its public policy implications and design considerations, our co-living special offers some exciting directions for the future of urban housing.
