Abstract

This article analyses a tripartite conceptualisation of urban public space as site for play through evidence from South Bank, London. It draws on ethnographic data to argue that "play" is a recurrent trait of sociospatial practices enacted in public space. Three interrelated typologies of playful practices in public space are discussed : child's play, plays on meaning, and play as a simulation
