Please Skate on Me

First up - public spaces that actually embrace urban culture rather than stifle it. These skateable benches from Tom Hawes are specifically designed to provide maximum grind factor for skaters while still offering an attractive seating option for public spaces.

Hawes points out that older kids and teenagers are often ignored in the planning of public spaces - which seems obvious to me the second you walk into any mall and see 30 teenagers hanging out because they have no where else to go.

The only question the design raises for me is - what happens when some people are sitting down and others want to skate? I imagine the temptation to ollie an old lady on the bench might be too irresistible for some to pass up.

é uma ideia interessante, mas não penso que funcione na totalidade como se pretende em teoria.. Se tão lá a andar de skate eu nao me vou sentar no banco ou ainda apanho com um de rajada. O contrário também poderá ser conflituoso, estando eu sentado, não se vão pôr uns tipos a andar de skate...
