Description - Urban Intervention: Design Ideas for Public Space by Shaoqiang Wang
Urban interventions establish strong links between the social and spatial spheres of cities, giving place to interactions by which art and architecture make use of public spaces. Urban Interventions presents a rigorous selection of projects that have transformed streets, parks and derelict areas of cities all over the world into extraordinary public spaces, seeking people's involvement through a wide variety of interactive and collaborative activities. Fully illustrated in colour, the book includes installations, events and art works and offers a global and comprehensive vision of 21st century cities, as they become meeting places full of creative possibilities.
