On occasion of the Social Design Public Action symposium at the University of Applied Arts Lukas Feireiss guest-edited this special edition of the Slum Lab Magazine directed by Urban-Think Tank founders Alfredo Brillembourg and Hubert Klumpner. The reader is a research and publishing collaboration between Columbia University New York, ETH Zurich and the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Initially, the magazine dealt mainly with the theme of slums and informal settlements. However, over the course of numerous publications, S.L.U.M. Lab has grown to address a wide variety of global urban themes. Since its first edition, S.L.U.M. Lab has proven to be both provocative and popular. Knowledge sharing has always been a core aspect of the magazine.
