astragal at the urban summit

Risk-taking, and its relationship to public realm design, proved an interesting summit session. It started with a video by Parkour Association, those people who leap from roof to roof on those wonderful TV clips. There had been a plan for them to be there in person to leap from the roof of one summit venue to another, but the building owners blocked this on the grounds that it was, you guessed it, too risky.
