Catalogue "In favor of Public Space; ten years of the european prize for urban public space"

The catalogue of the European Prize for Urban Public Space surveys the twenty-nine prize-winning works and Special Mentions of the six awards of the European Prize for Urban Public Space in the words of architects, urban planners, writers, philosophers, sociologists and politicians who review them from lucid and suggestive standpoints. Far from being confined to a strictly architectural reading of the works this appraisal inquires deeply into the civic values, the political nature and the collective sense that shape the core and essence of the concept of public space, offering valuable testimony to the great diversity of forms embraced by this idea in making its presence felt the length and breadth of the continent of Europe.
