Since 2010, The Global Grid is dedicated to providing unique hyperlocal urbanist news from around the world. Using insights from local culture, politics, economics, religion and context, our on-the-ground team provides local perspectives to global themes. The Global Grid focuses on eight themes: planning, transportation, development, architecture, housing, landscapes, economy, and technology. Our team of writers explore the themes through a local’s point of view, discovering best and worst-case practices around the globe - and sharing potential solutions to common built environment dilemmas. The Global Grid is committed to knowledge-sharing in our open source, creative commons community.
