ADDRESSING THE IN-BETWEEN
Architecture and public spaces are well, if not prestigious accepted components of the urban realm – but what about technical infrastructure? Although the interdependence between infrastructure and urban development has been a central topic in urban planning, infrastructure as a design element plays a comparatively subordinate role. This volume in our Basics series discusses spatial design implications of technical and transport infrastructure. The authors introduce projects of various scales – from skate parks to urban motorways – located in many different cities – such as Mexico City, New York, London, Paris, Zurich, Seattle, Barcelona, Stockholm, Sa~o Paulo, Antwerp, amongst others. They demonstrate that infrastructure generates its own category of urban territory.
