Urban planning: skateboarder benches

Urban planners never take into account how skateboarders could actually “help” a community. In fact, where the skateboarders hang out often “regulate possibly dangerous spaces with their presence.”
Perhaps this is something we should all take into account when we plan out downtown Greensboro. This UK artist: Tom Hawes definitely has worked in a tremendously wonderful idea to help protect the community along with empowering youth.
Take a look.
