Abstract

[Extract] Re-framing Urban Space is a compelling and engaging book that advocates the need for reconsidering the conventional notion of urban experience and presents new conceptual models of public spaces. Indeed, public space is a critical component of any urban structure, which plays a significant role, especially in high-density urban centers. Cho, Heng, and Trivic underline how the recent rapid changes and transformed lifestyles have led to "emerging hybrid urban spaces" that are significantly different to familiar typologies of squares, streets, and plazas. Utilizing the existing literature and 50 case studies mainly from Asia, in addition to Europe and Australia, the authors break down the complexity of contemporary public spaces, defining new themes and attributes that can describe and be the basis for classifying emerging public spaces. This book has five chapters.
