Space is at a premium. This we know. Visit any major city today and issues of congestion, sustainability and liveability loom uncomfortably large. At the same time, in spite of the fact that we're increasingly conducting our social interaction in the disembodied digital realm, we're still made of flesh and blood. Which is why shared public spaces are becoming ever-more important – as places both to spread our wings and to flock together.
