Ouvrage : Urban Spaces – Environments for the future. Jacobo Krauel. 08/01/2009
This collection of outstanding projects for public spaces is an excellent overview of current trends in urban planning; new forms of social existence have led to an increased interest in the definition of urban space.
Our cities have already crossed the dividing line between space to inhabit and habitable space and, at present, it is difficult to conceive of a good urban development plan without an equally good plan of the public space involved. This volume has brought together twenty five examples of the best in urban design, with the indelible stamp of the most internationally known professionals. Each of them is thoroughly documented and illustrated with full color glossy photographs and drawings, to capture the full scale of the project’s complexities, technical assets and aesthetic innovations.
