Revitalization

The Space Between

By Ben Bull
Published July 13, 2007

A great article by Christopher Hume explains why parks are such an important part of healthy cities.

If the 20th century was dedicated to buildings, the 21st will be about the spaces between them.

In communities around the world, this one included, interest in the public realm – parks, squares, plazas, piazzas – has never been greater.

Reflecting on the closeted condo lifestyles prevelant in places like Toronto, Hume suggests that citizens are now flocking out of their front doors and into their city like never before:

Life in Toronto has become more European; we no longer just live in the city, we inhabit it. The city is where we eat, drink, sit outside, meet friends, or simply watch the passing parade.

Now isn't that a great vision for a city?

Ben Bull lives in downtown Toronto. He's been working on a book of short stories for about 10 years now and hopes to be finished tomorrow. He also has a movie blog.
