Urban spaces

A decidedly terrible place in winter. When you can choose anywhere in Zealand to place playgrounds where both children and parents can see each other and everyone else around them, why on earth would you build a play and fitness park in the howling wind atop an eight-story parking structure? You won’t see many people besides young men spending time up there. It can be fascinating to create attractions on rooftops, but what happens at street level, that is what you see and experience when you move about the city. Especially because we’re working so hard to bring more life to the new urban districts. Then it seems idiotic to take something as important as sport and children’s play and place them high up where nobody can see them.
