The organisation of public space raises many challenges. Its very nature of being on public display makes urbanism one of the fields of architecture that is most open to debate and controversy. Urban spaces should not only strive for balance between solid and void in the urban fabric, but they must also be highly functional. All architects stems from the need to offer answers and solutions to specific problems and demands; these answers and solutions are then integrated into a generally predefined environment with various limitations. This book Sustainable Urban Landscape offers a sample of some of the works that, thorough their originality, ingenuity and creativity, have found a method of sustainable design. In these designs an interest in nature goes hand in hand with the design, providing beautiful spaces for living in harmony with the environment.
