Title

The European Town Square as an Ideal Place, or Camillo Sitte Revisited

Author
Published in Environment, Land, Society Architectonics. 2008, vol. 1, no. 2, p. 24-37
Abstract The Urban Square is first considered as a place and even a high place of the European town. Criteria established by Camillo Sitte regarding the ideal urban square are then discussed from a morphologic and aesthetic point of view. These criteria are interpreted in the context of more contemporary functions and uses, and Sitte’s criteria are either validated or invalidated.
