Skateboarders 'essential' for cities


'The Independent' has a summary of a lecture by urban commentator Iain Borden in which he makes a plea for practices and spaces that are more creative in their engagement with cities, and which go beyond the shopping mall and the piazza. The Library here at GSA has a good selection of Borden's thought-provoking writings, including his 'Skateboarding, space and the city', which reflects his passion for the sport.
