Civic Realism.

Civic Realism.


Rowe, Peter G.

Pap. Cambridge, 1999

Book ID: 28182

Considers civic places as locales for participation in everyday life, occasional events, solumn occasions and extra-ordinary celebrations, rather than simply state-sponsored edifices or enclaves of corporatized commercialism. Examples include Siena's Piazza del Campo, the Grand Projets of Paris, Plecnik's Ljubliana, and contemporary Barcelona.
