The introduction to this 7th volume focuses on the broader theme of public space. How do you bring together habitat, mobility, social interactions, amenities/services and culture? How do you rethink urban mobility consistent with current technological, ecological and digital issues? What place does the citizen have in the public space, as a place to meet, a place where links are made and a clear driving force for the quality of life? What examples are there to follow and what solutions to offer?
With participation of the Bouwmeesters, who have set out their vision for us in Belgium, and of the Citilinks architects, for an international perspective - from New York to Shanghai, this is a must read reference book on the greatest achievements in contemporary architecture of recent years. From offices and shops, housing, public spaces, to cultural & educational sites, there are over 60 recently completed structures by Belgian and foreign architects to be discovered in this latest volume.
