  • Public green space in the community refers to public space that is located in sections of residential land, often a space providing entertainment facilities and a place for the community to interact across various activities.

    As one of the most important components of urban green space, public green space in the community makes a huge impact on the quality of residents’ daily lives, socially, environmentally, and for the overall health and well being of the community. With the rapid development of the urbanization process, people are paying much more attention to the construction of infrastructure in their living environments, thus the construction of public green space is steadily increasing on a larger scale. The construction of the green space not only helps improve the quality of residential living spaces and the level of public welfare, but these spaces also inspire residents’ participation and engagement within the community. This volume showcases the benefits and advantages of designing green space within the community, for the community. Set out with insightful and informative guidelines and established case studies for current trends, this book enhances the reader’s awareness of the current trends in the industry and the strategies employed by international landscape designers, urban planners and landscape architects from around the world.

    Filled with glorious full-color photography, detailed diagrams and plans, this is a must-have guide for all design professionals looking to improve infrastructure and planning methodologies in urban environments.
