Episodes

Seoul Design  

Long overshadowed by its neighbours, Seoul's creative community is flourishing as a new generation of designers, artists and entrepreneurs develop projects from product design to theatre spaces. Monocle's Gabriel Leigh travelled to the South Korean capital to meet some of the people leading the charge.

Craftsmanship  

Some cities come to mind straight away when you think of craft and design, but it's also true that untapped markets offer opportunities for entrepreneurship. We talk to designers and artisans in Shanghai, Bradford, Winter Park in Florida and NovĂ˝ Bor in the Czech Republic, who are reclaiming neglected traditions, adding a contemporary twist and attracting a new, global market.

Charleston  

In a former jail, now home to the American College of Building Arts, students are learning traditional restoration techniques and preserving their city of Charleston, South Carolina, in the process. David Kaufman visits the school offering hands-on building experience, which included the renovation of its HQ, the Old Jail.
