Abstract:

This book, aimed at both users and creators of elements and spaces of the city, brings together a selection of 132 pieces of European street furniture and microarchitecture. These elements are situated in the public space, and united by the shared purpose of providing a service to the public; a service that encompasses a great range and variety of uses and functions, as these emerge in line with the new needs of the city. It contains little pieces of architecture by world-famous figures such as Norman Foster, Renzo Piano, Aldo Rossi, Jorge Pensi, Bach/Mora or Philippe Starck. The book is structured in the form of descriptive profiles, easily accessible, full and informative, of each of the featured elements; these identify the designer and the manufacturer and give the complete technical and formal characteristics, together with photographs and scale drawings. -- Synopsis.
