THE PUBLIC CHANCE is a visual analysis of 30 urban landscapes of opportunity. The projects selected are grouped according to scene of origin:
- Industrial areas
- Peripheral voids
- Infrastructures
- Waterfronts.
Each project is located:
- within surroundings of 60 km2 at a scale of 1:20,000
- within surroundings of 3.5 km2 at a scale of 1:10,000.

Each intervention undergoes a layer analysis:
- water
- vegetation
- buildings
- routes
- rooms
- activities

The 20 most used strategies arise from the comparison of all the projects.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Large and wonderful book full of iconic examples of urban design and landscape architecture throughout Europe and the United States. Effective photography, renderings, and diagrams convey the character and functionality of the projects very well. Brief but concise descriptions of each of the projects supplement the wonderful imagery. Great as a reference or coffee table book for the student or professional. I work in a private design firm and we have referenced this volume for inspiration many times.

Format: Hardcover
Detailed description and comparison of 34 projects under 4 main categories. Satisfactory set of data including plans and sections and comparison of each project in means of layers and urban strategies. Lots of renderings / built environment shots. Great design for an architectural book. Thanks to the publishers! Keep up the good work a+t!
