Communities focus themselves around piazzas which is why, on arriving at a new town or city, visitors gravitate towards such spaces, Traflagar Square, St Mark’s Square, Placa de Catalunya, Alexanderplatz etc.

This is a study of the forms of several minor squares or piazzas from around the world. Note that most have an informal shape suggesting that they have been developed over time. There is an incremental quality to them that adds to the delight of the experience.

The squares that I wish to return to are the ones that have distorted geometry.
