SOMETHING ROUGHLY IN THE MIDDLE 126
Buildings: Interconnecting paths Menu Prev Next
Problem
A public space without a middle is quite likely to stay empty.
Solution
Between the natural paths which cross a public square or courtyard or a piece of common land choose something to stand roughly in the middle: a fountain, a tree, a statue, a clock-tower with seats, a windmill, a bandstand. Make it something which gives a strong and steady pulse to the square, drawing people in toward the center. Leave it exactly where it falls between the paths; resist the impulse to put it exactly in the middle.
