  • Triangulation is the concept of clustering activities together to createa busy, dynamic place for many different types of people at differenttimes of day. For example, movable seating “triangulates” with a pond,toy sailboats, and a cafe to create a very full experience in one area ofCentral Park. In Luxembourg Gardens, the combination of a puppettheatre, carousel, café, bocce court, and basketball court around achildren’s play area makes a very exciting destination for all ages. Alibrary next to a reading garden and a laundromat will be a far busierplace than any one of those uses by itself. One test of how well a placetriangulates is to evaluate how long the typical person stays there. Ifmost people stay in a public place for an hour, then what more couldbe layered on to lengthen that visit to three or four hours? Anotherindicator is how many different age groups use a place. If it is onlypeople between 18 and 30, then what other activities could attract thoseyounger and older?
  • Gabriels Wharf was a derelict site with a blank factory wall and a great view of the Thames. Developers Coin Street Community Builders briefed USM to exploit the site short-term potential by designing, building and managing a scheme that would pay for itself in no more than four years, prior to eventual redevelopment, and at the same time fit in with their wider aims for co–operative housing.USM solution was a mix of retail craft workshops, pub and riverside restaurants, performance space, weekend market and low-cost promotion. Construction cost had to be low, yet success depended on high visual interest and quality. This was achieved by innovative use of relocatable building and exhibition techniques, including a trompe which turned the blank wall into a shopping street. The solution, which took just three months from drawing board to opening ceremony, was so successful that it is still flourishing nearly two decades later

    is other people.”
  • One of the best things about water is the look and feel of it…It’s not right to put water before people and then keep them away from it.
