Published by Neville Mars
BURB is a magazine from the year 2020 that describes the life in the advanced urban setting that has emerged. Dense and intense, beautiful cityscapes have been created, but reading the articles and interviews it becomes clear cities built solely on commercial forces lack many qualities. This issue looks back at the period 2010-2020 and celebrates the ten year anniversary of the 'Cunning City'. Slowly the stark reality below the surface of slick architecture and mind numbing commercialization become apparent.

Welcome citizens! Welcome visitors! ten years ago this land under ourfeet Was farm land. ten years ago the sky Was gray With dust and soot,and our hands blistered from spades and rusty shovels. today We arehere to look around us at What We have created. We have created adream. a dream of glass and concrete, of parks and avenues, schoolsand office toWers.in this our beautiful city has excelled Where so many havefailed. far from the glare of shanghai, the proWess ofguangzhou, and the splendor of beijing, Wehave blossomed. Without hesitationWe have developed beyond amere productioncenterto becomea poWerful trade hub,an educational center, a touristdestination, a shopper’s paradise, a city ofthe masses. today this city is a metropolis, and one of the mostcompetitive on the globe.to get here We have Walked neW and uncertain roads. We have builtWith blind courage and persistence. We have abandoned the existingand relinquished tradition. We have denied the permanent and embracedthe dynamic, and evolved even beyond ourselves.today this city is all cities. every morning it reveals itself in unseenWays. it’s like a forest — its roots digging deep in the hard soil, itsbranches our dense roads and bridges, its canopy of green like ourterraced estates. today the cunning city no longer is a city. it is aWorld. a World Where We live, produce and consume. you Will all agreeWhen i say, this brave neW World We have built together: its structures soextravagant they make other cities redundant; its artificial landscapesso subtle they can rival mother nature herself.Who can resist such glorious temptations When it nurtures us, servesour desires, and our pleasures? the cunning city alWays knoWs WhatWe Want. it’s a friend With a mind of its oWn, and a body at Work for usday and night. behold its arteries throbbing in the dark.today for the first time We look back and take pride in our achievements.onlookers, local and foreign Were curious — critical sometimes.policy makers have often tried to deprive us. but the cunning city Wasstrong from its conception. it is not an instant city, but an urbannucleus unfolding rapidly. its success formula is Widely imitated. thecunning city has unleashed a social revolution. too many cities Weremerely throWn up by Well-connected businessmen and over-zealousofficials. their vitality perished With the first cracks in the paint. theirconcrete shells, noW empty, lie scattered around the landscape. We haveinvested together, avoiding opportunism and state squander. many ofyou gathered here today left the fields or abandoned the factories andconstruction sites to build your oWn home, your oWn city. noW We allbenefit from the prosperity of the cunning city corporation.those days the World around us Was in turmoil, occupied by greed andreligious extremism. all We believed in Was progress! mass migrationWas our exodus. the neW city Was our promised land. our faith:progress, performance and prosperityWith this belief, you, the citizens have designed a city in the likenessof your oWn desires. you have packed the centerto its full commercial potential,and sculpted suburbs to fit effortlessly into your comfortableconsumer lifestyle. Who Wanted Walls or gates, When shoppingcould be so seamless? Who Wanted to Wait, When you couldinstead alWays be moving? today We can add tWo more p – thoseof perfection and play. What’s left for us is to enjoy the ride.
