Up on the roof...

I been talking about converting retail space to learning space for ages years and there are lots of good examples around - from New Zealand and Bangkok to Anchorage but it looks like becoming a large scale reality in the UK too - and I'm involved in a one of the biggest initiatives in what is now looking like being called edu-tail.

It is amazing how much play space can be included within, and like this sports surface on a school roof in Blackpool, on top of, these urban spaces and the sense of a New Urban Campus reinvigorating our decaying retail centres is exciting - and staggeringly affordable.
