Small StructuresISBN: 3764369809; 978-3-7643-6980-4;
Book DescriptionIt is usually the large structures that attract attention. We have to look twice to see those small buildings that so often lend a street or square its particular charm. Newspaper kiosks, telephone cells, bus shelters, a florist’s stall – they are all part of everyday city life and infrastructure, and necessary ingredients of any urban composition. They occupy the gaps and embellish empty spaces.In this publication Topos – European Landscape Magazine gathers together many successful examples of these fanciful and eccentric architectural footnotes from Iceland to Croatia, focussing on how location and context determine their design.
