Join The Open Office to watch William H. Whyte's charming and witty observations of public space in 1980s New York.

William H. Whyte's 1988 film documenting use of public space in New York, begins by focusing on Seagram Plaza and proceeds to analyse successful, and less successful, public spaces in Manhattan. Closely observed and funny, this is a masterclass in accessible urbanism.
