The book 'The Landscape of Contemporary Infrastructure', which since its initial publication has become a standard work for designers of infrastructure, provides a fundamental approach to infrastructure based on four characteristics: as the cause of increased mobility, as a physical presence, as an initiator of movement, and as a collective shared experience of space.

These characteristics form the guideline for four chapters that describe a typology of the design concepts that are used worldwide in current practice. Each chapter is illustrated with key projects from around the world, by designers such as Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid, Arata Isozaki and OMA.
