A+T 52 Paradises – Urban Park Strategies

ISBN: 9788409098804

31.50

The fifth volume of the ‘Strategy’ series is dedicated to urban parks. Through a selection of projects, the magazine identifies and analyses design strategies with which to create accessible, natural paradises for the urban dweller. To study the projects from the perspective of these strategies is to venture into the relationships that emerge between them, and – as a consequence – between the projects themselves. Initiated in 2010, the ‘Strategy’ series defines scalar scopes, evidences disciplinary origins, and composes a grid that overlaps the project to offer a new vision of it.
