The School of Life and Will Alsop

Or, The Glorious Potential of Boredom..... a talk by architect Will Alsop.

I have a feeling it was/is today, however, there is a short interview over at the School of Life where he mentions:

SOL: You’ve argued that “if a society is creating spaces where people are happy to sit and do nothing, it’s doing something right”.  

WA:  Strange that it’s difficult to sit in a public space and do nothing, as they have moved all the benches, at the expense of street cafes where you have to pay to sit and do nothing.

Now that's a talk I would have liked to go to....
