Book Description:

"For a long time, conscientious professionals have expressed hostility towards dense environments and tall buildings, harboring, instead, the ideals of public spaces in the "human" scale and the city's rich visual communication in Medieval or 19th century urban design. Today, however, anybody can freely eat, profess their love, or read newspapers not only on ground level, but at heights 10m, 100m, 1,000m and 10,000m above ground. It is now time for classical knowledge to be reconstructed. This book provides stimulating material for architects, urban designers and landscape architects to revisit design philosophies on public spaces and reach brilliant new ideas fit to the realities of today." – Hidetoshi Ohno, Professor Emeritus, University of Tokyo
