New form of social existence have led towards 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 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. This book, the fruit of a complete case study, will undoubtedly be the greatest value to all architects, urban planners and students seeking an introduction to the latest tendencies in the filed of public space design.
