Today, architecture is not always only about buildings but also about the spaces between them. This is the first book to showcase the best and most diverse examples of public space from all over the world. Architectural authority, Sarah Gaventa, considers new public spaces all over the world within themed chapters (see overleaf). Each chapter is finished with either an essay by, or interview with, a high-profile contributor. After each chapter introduction follow case studies of permanent, temporary, large-scale, and tiny interventions (a small percentage will be unbuilt). Each case study is illustrated extensively with a ground plan to provide a thorough understanding of the site. This book proves that public space no longer refers to just public squares and parks, it now includes: dead space around housing estates, roundabouts, car parks, and reclaimed dockyards and waterfronts. It is an important part of contemporary architecture and a competitive area as cities try to out-do each other to attract investment and tourists.
