Item description for Urban Squares: Recent European Promenades, Squares, and City Centres by Topos Topos - European Landscape Magazine...

What would a town be without squares? It is precisely these open spaces which give the built areas their meaning, function and character. Squares provide a breathing space within the structure of the city, separating and connecting. They are the stage for urban actors, a centre of interaction, the heart of the political and social life of an urban community and frequently the subject of passionate public debate. As such, designing new squares or redesigning existing ones is a fascinating challenge for architects, urban planners and landscape architects. This book presents the best and most attractive squares which have been presented in individual Topos magazines since 1993. It contains successful examples from Barcelona, Lyon, Rotterdam, Reykjavik, Verona, Dublin and Vienna.

Reviews - What do customers think about Urban Squares: Recent European Promenades, Squares, and City Centres?

Urban Squares  Jan 2, 2003
Seventeen innovative public spaces, devised for European cities over the past decade, are described and evaluated in this collection of features from Topos, the German landscape magazine. It's a lively mix of plazas and infills, but several-most notably the Schouwburgplein in Rotterdam-are over-designed, require a higher level of maintenance than the city is able to provide, and fail the test of usability.
