A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Outstanding urban parks as varied as the people who use them worldwide are examined in this handsome volume. As documented in these pages, areas conceived as green spaces for citizens' enjoyment are linked to the city, but must also have some autonomy to be effective. This volume consists of a series of projects grouped within the term park, which is as broad as it is ambiguous. Due to the irregular and fast growth of today's cities, the urban park has acquired complex meanings, which this insightful book explores. Asensio Cerver, in his introduction to the first volume (Urban Spaces I), says, "The idea of designing landscape is a form of creativity that has been practised for centuries, but only in the second half of this century has it received the same institutional, academic and public recognition as other humanistic activities like architecture and art. Only recently has landscaping begun to be rationally studied and ... its underlying principles and aims are little known to the general public, which often mistakes or belittles its intentions and results."

Description de la librairie

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
