I came across these two examples of how temporary urban spaces are being used to great effect in London and Glasgow. People having great fun, gardening in unlikely spaces.

There is an ad on one of the UK TV stations currently with a similar theme. I think it is for a bank but i am not sure. It is about a man bringing unused spaces to life in a city, at the base of trees that have a kerb around them for example. Who finances it or maintains them is a mystery.

It's the Co-op Bank at the moment but the idea's not new. People have done it before but the Co-op like to suggest that, like the bloke in the ad, they're something different.
