I plan on going back to the site of this bench tomorrow to get a good photograph – there is a much better one than this to be had. The circular bench and the surrounding concrete wall are really interesting but, as with most of this city, some really interesting geometry is all but ruined by unimaginative and ugly planting. It is really hard to work around and does nothing for the city.
One day I’ll post some pictures of the really ugly giant cheap’n’nasty plastic planters that now litter the town center pavements along with our new really ugly and out of place signage.
I still think that this structure is really interesting though.
