The first edition of the book 'The City at Eye Level', published in 2013, was written with a community of 40 contributors and was aimed at the topic of active ground floors (plinths) in Europe and North-America. This second book has 90 contributors, has best practices of all continents and offers a broader view on placemaking and the entire street level experience.

The editors from Stipo added new, previously missing topics, such as the urban soundscape and wayfinding. Just as in the first edition, they draw the integrated conclusions for the approach at the end of the book. This edition goes more deeply into how the insights can be used for concrete action in practice.

The City at Eye Level is an international programme aimed at improving the city at eye level and at creating a public space with the human scale, interaction and experience as key focus. The programme turns streets, plazas and areas into places where people feel at home and want to stay; and lets buildings contribute to the quality of public space with their ground floors (plinths). The method combines use, design and organisation (software, hardware and orgware) and work on the level of the building, the street and the context.
 
The City at Eye Level brings together an international network with a wealth of knowledge, inspiration and practice. The international network of contributors contains experts for placemaking, design, pedestrian flows, street performance, the urban sound scape, markets, street management, city wide strategy, newly built areas and transformation, to name a few. Stipo has set up this open source network, in collaboration with partners UN Habitat, Future of Places, Project for Public Spaces (PPS.org), Gehl Architects, FAU PUCRS University of Porto Alegre in Brazil and Copenhagenize.
