as the industrial age has evolved into the information age, our cities have gained new potential in how they can function and be used, with new and different types of community centres being established. gestalten publishers ‘going public’ looks at the transformation of our existing communal squares, parks and waterfronts, offering readers a survey of original contemporary projects which include community gardens, outdoor movie theaters, temporary installations and other cultural venues–a selection of formal and informal interventions, reclamations and architecture which illustrate the current scope of how we have begun to repurpose our built environment for shared use.

 

the book features solutions for ubiquitous urban infrastructure including park benches, fences, pavilions, ranging from bold to subtle, temporary to permanent, architecture to urban design, offering a diverse spectrum of surprising interpretations of our surroundings and natural landscapes. it highlights our departure from gathering places of the past–churches, marketplaces, townhalls–and projects a new perspectiveon the role of public space, a change from the traditional counterparts.
