The shaping and reshaping of the world's public spaces, dramatically illustrated in the first two Urban Spaces volumes, continues unabated. The universal appeal of spaces where people can gather continues to generate new parks, plazas, lobbies, and atriums, as well as new people-oriented neighborhoods and communities. Both public and private clients are investing in creative urban spaces.
The Urban Land Institute has again cooperated with Visual Reference Publications to co-sponsor this third volume showcasing urban spaces designed by leading architects, landscape architects, urban designers, and planners.
Urban Spaces No. 3 is a lavishly illustrated, thoughtfully annotated tour of diverse projects throughout the world. John Morris Dixon, FAIA, long-time chief editor of Progressive Architecture magazine, explains the major design challenges and accomplishments of these outstanding projects.
Visited are such public facilities as Denver's Invesco Field; mixed-use urban developments such as Millennium Place in Boston, and the Shops at North Bridge in Chicago; resort communities such as Martinique on the Alabama coast and River Run in the Colorado Rockies. Current community planning is exemplified in revitalization plans for Joliet, Illinois, and Jupiter, Florida, and in new communities such as Alameda Point in California. Looking abroad, you will examine the Manchester Regional Center in England, and audacious plans for the Beijing Olympics. .
Urban Spaces No. 3 will be an invaluable reference for clients, public officials, building committees, and professionals who are responsible for the planning, design, and construction of urban developments of all kinds.
