In a systematic overview, following the workflow sequence of open space projects, the book explores the various types and levels of urban intervention: from master planning to guerilla gardening and from land reclamation to building an existing fabric.

Case studies mostly from North America, Europe and Asia accompany the introductory essays. The emphasis is on strategies of interaction between landscape projects, building development and urban planning, resulting in neighbourhoods and city quarters that offer a higher quality of life.
