MAS Context is a Chicago-based not-for-profit organization that addresses issues that affect the urban context. We do so through publications, various types of public events, and installations. Each publication delivers a comprehensive view of a single topic through the active participation of people from different fields and different perspectives who, together, instigate the debate.

Our current issue focuses on Character and has been guest edited by Design With Company. The issue is dedicated to the memory of architect, author, and educator Stanley Tigerman (1930-2019).

Below is an evolving collection of articles selected by our editor in chief Iker Gil.
