Civic Space

Civic Space

This could be a vibrant civic square with tables, chairs, cafes, a restaurant and maybe even a pub. People relaxing, having a coffee or beer, enjoying the view while sitting in a community enriching, public space.

But, it is not.

If you need any proof of that, you only have to look at the fact that, when they put the olympic cauldron here, the public was totally excluded from any consultation on if we even wanted it there and kept back by gigantic jersey barriers and chain-link fences.

This space is not meant for people and to make sure you know that, there is nothing human sized here at all.

The streets around here are already used a lot for filming and, if they need a set for a Nuremberg rally, this space would fit the bill perfectly.
