What opportunities exist for the maximisation of public space through an investigation into the manipulation of human movement?

People use space. This presents an opportunity for the process of using space to be altered or manipulated. The movement of people, or users, over a landscape field is often a missed opportunity for enlivening or supplementing the experience of a site.

This opportunity can be utilized through the application of subtle landscape prompts. The use of perspective, screening and manipulation of circulation systems, allows the designer to alter the behaviour of the user site, with the intent of maximising the experience for those people and the potential of the site. The intent of this design is to consider the user as the number one stakeholder within a landscape.
