Urban Interventions / Vallo Sadovsky Architects

Vallo Sadovsky Architects recently sent us their latest book, Urban Interventions. We have featured one of Vallo Sadovsky Architects’ projects before, BA_LIK. That project gets to the heart of what this book is about. Small urban interventions can completely transform and revive a space and city. This book is filled with writings and examples that expand on that idea. “The proposals in these pages are, with few exceptions, practical solutions to real urban problems, most of them having to do with the creation of place or connecting disparate places together, by shifting the perception of the value of a piece of open space or mending a neighborhood from the effects of a multilane freeway. Some of the most inspiring are also the most modest, replacing lost trees with potted plants that provide seating for rest or perhaps a conversation with a neighbor,” writes John Peterson.

Take a look inside after the break.
