Ken Worpole in praise of real public space

At a lecture given at the Garden Museum, writer, academic and chair of Clissold Park Users Group Ken Worpole highlighted the benefits of open space, available to all. He referenced his superb book on public space, democracy and architecture Hear Comes the Sun. I found myself in Clissold Park the next day. For me it was the place I was taken as a child, my idea of the rolling countryside complete with wild animals and its own railway engine. Now it is beautifully preserved and looking brilliant in autumn.
