Urban Squares or Plazas

They are comparatively small, formal ornamental grounds, often with a hard surface and dominated by surrounding buildings.  They are intimately ordered with the abutting streets and are usually graced by monuments, statues, and fountains. Ideally an important public building would face upon an urban square.

Examples front the Orlando History Center and the Orange County Courthouse
