In 1990, Johannes Busmann founded the magazine polis, which focused on architecture, urban planning and monument preservation, and the publishing house Müller + Busmann, which specializes in architecture and urban development. Today, the magazine is published nationwide and accompanies urban developments in the context of civic authorship, municipal planning sovereignty and real estate innovations. Since 2015, the polis Convention, an annual trade fair and specialist congress, has complemented the discourse on urban development.
