The Writingplace journal for Architecture and Literature is an international, open-acces, peer-reviewed journal on architecture and literature. Each issue of the journal focuses on themes central to the fruitful relationship between architecture and literature. This Writingplace journal issue Meaningfulness, Appropriation and Integration in/of City Narratives is developed in context of the EU COST Action “Writing Urban Places”. From an inter- or a multidisciplinary theoretical perspective, the contributions attempt to define and illustrate meaningfulness, appropriation and integration in the context of mid- sized European cities. The articles explore narratives and stories of meaningfulness in the urban environment, discuss examples of urban appropriation from different local actors, and highlight architectural processes and literary perspectives of community integration in the European urban context.
