Welcome. This is The Aesthetic City, a content platform created in August 2021 by Ruben Hanssen, with a clear mission: to help make our built environment more beautiful, liveable and sustainable by spreading knowledge about urbanism and architecture.
The Aesthetic City was originally intended to only be a podcast. A Twitter account was created to promote the podcast, which started to grow rapidly. Our first podcast episode was finally released on the 10th of March, 2022.
By now, The Aesthetic City is much more than our Twitter account: we are active on YouTube , Instagram, Tiktok, there is a Substack newsletter and a Patreon account. A book is in the works, as well as many more videos and podcasts. We hope to grow our reach by growing the team, giving talks and publishing works – all to spread information on how to make our cities more liveable, beautiful places.
If you really like what The Aesthetic City is doing and want to support our mission, please consider becoming a patron. For now, this is purely a passion project, but I want to ultimately turn it into my full time job. With enough patrons, it will be possible to hire an editor to create even more content and to achieve even more impact in the real world.
