Description

Going Public showcases the creative revival of public space in our urban and rural landscapes. The book's compelling selection of formal and informal interventions, reclamations, and architecture illustrates the current scope and interest in refashioning and repurposing our built environment for public use. The objectives of the featured examples are as diverse as the projects themselves and range from inspiring communication and community experience to devising new menas of gathering in and connecting to nature.

From imaginitive benches and pavillions in urban centers to contemporary viewing platforms and self-guided trails in rural areas, Going Public reveals a diverse range of innovative public spaces achieved with both large and small budgets. In addition to transformations of existing public squares, parks, and waterfronts, the book features original projects such as community gardens, outdoor movie theaters, temporary installations, and lookout points.

Ranging from bold to subtle and from temporary to permanent, the architecture and urban designs featured in Going Public offers inspiring and surprising interpretations of our public surroundings and natural landscapes.
