Public buildings are more than mere spaces and envelopes. They transcend their architecture to mimic one of the most significant human achievements of the last 5,000 years: the city itself.
This book offers a stunning selection of public building architecture from all over the world. The variety of uses and forms demonstrate the multiplicity of solutions and their insertion on different cultural, economic and social realities. The schools, museums, sports facilities, theatres and many other here presented, give the idea that the exchange between their users is a confirmation of their urban role.
