Including spectacular images of public spaces throughout the world, the book describes the economic, social and environmental benefits of urban parks, and then outlines the threats and challenges facing cities and communities in an age when more than half the world's population are urban dwellers. Future Park introduces the need to embrace new public park thinking to ensure that benefits continue to be realised. Future Park illustrates imaginative and resourceful responses to real challenges by highlighting recent proposals and projects. These projects coalesce around four broad themes - linkages, obsolescences, co-locations and installations - responding to contemporary urban paradoxes, and ensuring parks continue to play a vital role in the lives of our cities."--Publisher's website."@en ;
