Full of ideas for designing public spaces that create a community by connecting one another.
Recently there are many unique public facilities that have been designed utilizing renovated old schools, warehouses and houses. From nurseries and cafes to local gathering spaces and cultural facilities, these innovative spaces connect people and create communities. These buildings reflect the social needs they fulfill and, at the same time, use ingenious design to blend harmoniously into their local community and embrace the community’s values in order to create a sustainable lifestyle through design. Collecting examples from Japan and internationally, this book showcases a range of special design and graphic tools and features used in these public facilities.
