Summary: Open urban spaces are an ideal stage for public events. An important prerequisite for their design in an increasingly heterogeneous multicultural urban landscape is the relationship between design, use, and social function. The book documents 28 international projects, both temporary as well as permanent installations of various kinds ? from the open-air courtyard of a museum to the design of a river bank promenade, through to a city park. The projects illustrated are located in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, France, the Netherlands, the USA, Canada, and Australia. Contributions from internationally renowned experts discuss the various dimensions of the design of urban open spaces ? from the planning stage to the design, implementation, and upkeep, taking into account functional requirements.
