This collection of outstanding projects for public spaces, which ranges from city squares to airport terminals, is an excellent overview of the current changes happening in urban planning. Such spaces were once designed to be seen and not touched, but these modern interactive spaces almost demand participation. From the Stone Garden fountain where children are encouraged to play, to the intriguing landscape created by the "flying floors" of an airport ticketing pavilion, each project can be explored via full-color photographs, sketches, ground plans and commentary.
