Designing Great Public Spaces Can Be A Little Messy
I couple of weeks ago I tweeted:
We need to design places that are neat enough to provide safe and comfortable access and messy enough to provide for adventure and dragon habitat.
This image captures that idea, which is itself an adapted and elaborated upon design/planning principle discussed by Randolph Hester, whom I mentioned on Monday. He doesn’t discuss dragon habitat, but I hazard to guess he would approve. That addition revealed itself after I received the following letter for public comment regarding a current parks and recreation item.
If you think about it, don’t most of your favorite places have a bit of messiness to them?
Thank you for the comment, Alexandria!
