"Linked only by small pathways at its entrances, the new retails appeared to be cut apart from public footpath by the ventilation void of the parking lots. Also, looking back from the street, from their eye level, pedestrians will only see the plinth of the building. Considering the mentioned conditions, we found that our main task should be the area outside the mall, and our main goal should be to improve the walking environment of the public instead."

The city of Celje is the third largest city in Slovenia and its well-preserved paved Roman streets, magnificent castles and the remnants of the medieval walls in the city centre bear witness to its rich history that dates back to the Celts and the Romans.

The introduction of an underground car park in the city-centre at the Square of the Liberation in Troyes was the original reason of the re-qualification of the area. Thanks to the construction works of the underground structure and the clearing of some existing trees, a major perspective opened up towards the cathedral, making it obvious that a larger perimeter should be taken into account when rethinking the city center, including three city gardens and the Seine Chanel.

Schwäbisch Gmünd, a mid-sized town in southern Germany, has engineered a far-reaching urban redevelopment process resulting in a new green heart for the city.

In the middle of the last century the elegant boulevard was transformed into a pulsating arterial road, with little thought for pedestrians. The aim today is to transform the polluted and noisy inner Mariahilfer Straße into a traffic restricted zone.

Georgia Street, located at the heart of the historic Wholesale District and a spine that connected the new major venues, was identified at the time as an important corridor for future improvement. However, it would not see the impetus for its realization until 2009, when City leaders recognized the unique potential the street offered to their bid for hosting the 2012 Super Bowl. By bringing together the original hopes for Georgia Street with new aspirations of a green, pedestrian-centered, outdoor event venue, the city gained a contemporary public space that anchors the convention and entertainment district.
