New City Space, by Jan Gehl & Lars Gemzoe.
Published by The Danish Architectural Press, 2006.
Hardback book with colour photographs and architectural drawings. Used, in fine condition. Some very light superficial marking to cover.
'The upsurge in interest in public spaces and public life over the past twenty five years has generated an impressive array of city plans, public space strategies, and designs. This book presents an overview of this development and provides a detailed description of architecturally interesting and inspiring public space strategies and projects from all over the world. Nine cities with notable public space strategies were selected for special review: Barcelona, Lyon, Strasbourg, Freiburg, and Copenhagen in Europe, Portland in North America, Curitiba and Cordoba in South America, and Melbourne in Australia. In addition, thirty nine international public space projects are presented and discussed. Drawings, plans and photographs illustrate city strategies and public space projects in detail.'
A beautifully presented book, charting some of the most interesting works of urban landscape architecture.
