With this consideration, the book presents a collection of the most mesmerizing design projects reshaping cities’ topography by means of art, imagination, civic participation and low resources.

 In post-Katrina New Orleans the artist Candy Chang used the power of public art to provide hope for overcoming emotional trauma: she painted a wall of an abandoned building and stenciled the sentence, “Before I die I want to _____.” Within a day the wall was covered with colorful messages of people. Since then, more than four hundred Before I Die walls have been created in over 60 countries and over 25 languages. The book collects the images, the tears, the stories, the secret thoughts, the smiles, the fears and the dreams behind the public walls.
