擁擠的程度

許多規劃者總是太過擔心公共空間的乘載容量,好似公共空間裡,如果適合坐下來的空間太多,會太擁擠超果乘載管制的容量。這個擔心不僅杞人憂天更是完全擔心錯了方向,公共空間的閒置才是最主要的問題。事實上大部分城市開放空間的乘載容量鮮少超載,而那些乘載最多人的開放空間,也是讓人最感到愉悅使用空間。是使用者決定了擁擠的程度。

Level of crowding

Many planners worry about the carrying capacity. More sitting spaces could stimulate the use. But it is the opposite they should worry about. Underuse is the major problem. The carrying capacity of most urban open spaces is fare about the use that is made for them. The spaces that carry the most people are the most efficient in the use of space as well as the most pleasant. The people determine the level of crowding.
