New trends in commercial spaces
Architecturally successful public spaces fulfill a dual task: they make their identity representative (which at times is to entertain and please the user), and they offer the visitor a rapid and clear reading of their functions and services. This is of particular importance with hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, supermarkets, cinemas and theatres, which despite their great typological diversity, must respond to both premises. This brilliant publication presents an array of superbly designed public and commercial spaces where people undertake a range of activities from the deeply serious to the light and playful. Those that also involve a business activity of commercial exchange present elements of functionality that are strongly impregnated with creative expression.
