Making outdoor spaces interesting..

In London again and as I walked through Euston it was great to see imagination and real care being taken with outdoor spaces. The focus was clearly not just making them attractive but also seeing creativity with what could have been just empty spaces. High quality well kept "wavy grass" and sculptures at the entrance of the building I was visiting all really added to the interest and experience of the pedestrian.

Many new schools and learning environments are now considering the impact of outside learning spaces and the role they play in developing students and adults. The more we do this the better the quality of the space and the experience for students and adults. It is so much better than barren empty courtyards and pavements!
