If the idea of continuous pavement line network across London seems too out there, then another option could be more traditional wayfinding system with sign-posts in the centre or at the entrances of the green space. As the core idea of the Greenground is to travel through and between the parks, then maybe in the … Continue reading How a Greenground navigation could look like II
The first paper edition of #GreengroundMap came out last week (yay!) and I have been thinking how the Greenground idea could work in reality.

This is the second walk of my Edinburgh green walk series and covers around 5 miles of parks as well as some Edinburgh highlights.

Climbing up to Arthur’s … Continue reading Edinburgh Green Walk II – Meadows to Grassmarket
