Exciting cities remind you how very different spaces can be at different times of day and how they can be put to a diversity of uses. 

What fun if walls had ears. 

I found it so compelling to be in Dentons’ offices one evening and imagine a week’s footfall and debate, whilst realising that so much ambitious art had been both a foil and a witness.

What a great scheme this is, what a great conversation for all the participants to find themselves as players…
