Scope and Content

File documents an exploration of use and circulation of open spaces and natural areas throughout the Borough of Hackney just outside London: Hackney Marsh, Springfield Park, London Fields, and Victoria Park. Price felt that the "[i]ncrease in the amount of leisure time combined with increased personal mobility ma[d]e it essential that available P.O.S. be considered in relation to each other and together with all other urban facilities available." Regional plans include a partially enlarged plan of an unidentified area (DR1995:0206:001, DR1995:0206:003, and DR1995:0206:004). Two marked-up drawings which indicate circulation systems. Material in this file was produced in 1962.

File contains conceptual drawings.
