Urban design and planning involves the arrangement, appearance and functionality of towns and cities, with a particular focus on public spaces such as parks, squares and gardens as well as infrastructure and privately owned spaces. Urban Planning shows off the most recent examples of public spaces from all around the world conceived by thirty of the most relevant world architects in this field. The book illustrates the arrival of new resources, procedures and priorities to the art of designing public spaces. It includes maps, sketches, plans, an explanatory text and numerous colour photographs.
