THE PUBLIC CHANCE is a visual analysis of 30 urban landscapes of opportunity. The projects selected are grouped according to scene of origin: - Industrial areas - Peripheral voids - Infrastructures - Waterfronts.
Each project is located: - within surroundings of 60 km2 at a scale of 1:20,000 - within surroundings of 3.5 km2 at a scale of 1:10,000.
Each intervention undergoes a layer analysis: - Water - Vegetation - Buildings - Routes - Rooms - Activities
The 20 most used strategies arise from the comparison of all the projects.
THE PUBLIC CHANCE is the first book published by a+t ediciones in the In common series, which came about in 2005 in the pages of a+t magazine to express our concern for the good use and design of common spaces and was developed over two years, in four issues. THE PUBLIC CHANCE offers a renewed vision of some of those projects and a third of new interventions, all of them under thematic analysis, characteristic of a+t’s publications.
