I don’t mind the look of the rusty ship hulls as a theme at the park but I do find the craftsmanship to be a bit subpar. I would like to see cleaner lines and this work is simply not.

The loungers do look comfy though.

The tree planting was photographed in today's Spec:

If broken windows theory holds any water whatsoever, then we're unlikely to see much tagging in this area.

Could be wrong, though, so let's run the experiment and see how it goes.

This steel was developed by Stelco in the 60. It is designed to rust to a darker colour and be low maintenance. It has and is being used on bridges so they do not have to be repainted every few years. This is what is on the Stelco tower in Jackson Square and is the colour it will eventually become with time and weather.

Anyone remember the movie Demotion Man they had anti-graffiti defenses that automatically activated as soon as someone tried spray painting a wall. Yeah we need that or a Robocop patrolling lol. I completely agree with Berklon I fucking hate taggers and if I could go all Thanos and snap my fingers I would do away with that blight on society lol.

I really hope these don't get ruined....

Or a group of "concerned citizens" with non-lethal projectile weapons and itchy trigger fingers.
