Based between Los Angeles and Seoul, I write about architecture, urbanism, language, technology, cinema, travel, aesthetics and culture — all through the framework of cities, still the most exciting human invention of them all.
Colin Marshall writes about world cities for the Guardian, where he has closely observed such urban phenomena as the planning of the Las Vegas strip, shopping malls in the Philippines, bike-share systems in Korea, and the gentrification of Los Angeles' Skid Row. He also produces the video essay series The City in Cinema and hosted the world-traveling interview podcast Notebook on Cities and Culture. He's currently at work on the book A Los Angeles Primer: Mastering the Stateless City.
