Streets are an important part of urban infrastructure. Streets are means of transport and connections to many places whether we walk, cycle use public transit or drive but they are also places in their own right, t just passages from one location to ather. Streetscapes are the visual elements of a street including the road, open public spaces, the building fabric, trees, lighting, street furniture, signage and everything else that creates a street's identity. In other words, it's all that we see in the street - the complete scene. This volume includes chapters on the streetscape design, types and characteristics, streetscape elements and sustainable design followed by 33 projects from around the world.
