Affairs / Monocle

Quality of Life trailer

Months of good-natured, frequently late-night and jetlagged debate have produced Monocle's definitive (and just a little subjective) guide to the world's most liveable cities. Correspondents were dispatched worldwide to assess the cities. The entire issue is devoted to the concerns, forces, people and policies that make our cities work. Highlights include essays by thinkers such as Jonathan Raban and Alain de Botton - who both take a swipe at questionable new developments in their respective cities, Seattle and London. And after the perfect city has been found, Monocle provides a special separate design directory on how to build the ideal house, as well as offering advice on how to create the perfect neighbourhood.
