The Urbanist: The Summer of Play

Quadra by Serena Confalonieri, Milan.

I spoke to Andrew Tuck, host of Monocle’s weekly show The Urbanist, for an episode on the so-called Summer of Play: How can we design our streets to encourage play and give young people back the summer that was lost to the global pandemic?

Realized play projects including Milan’s Piazze Aperte and Hong Kong’s Ocean Park are also highlighted.
