Over the last few years, I’ve been doing research into public open space, mostly into active open space – i.e. active sporting fields.
More recently, I’ve become interested in the broader topic of open space planning and place making. This blog will allow me to explore the issues and ideas around this topic.
My first post explores what I mean by ‘public places and spaces’, which includes exploring what is 'public' and the differences between places and spaces.
I hope you enjoy it, and happy to get your views, comments and feedback.
