She was glad she never went outside without guarding herself in the plainest dullest thou diest cruising in her wardrobe. No one who glanced highway would bother looking for long. She sat the hoses on a swift path. Out of mayfair. Only when grosvenor square was no longer visible behind did she allow herself a small smile of victory. That cherished family portrait was coming home once she walked in that door with their painting held high. Did we escape. Came a low velvet voice from within the carriage. Khloe skin went cold.

"grosvenor square" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Urbanist

"Need to be created in an effort busy west end to people around the world that Word Mayfair. It comes with connotations. It's a very wealthy area. It's a very important part of London for many years. It had the. Us Embassy at one end. They've now become and move south of the river for all sorts of reasons. Space for security so grosvenor square is changing in itself. Are you trying to open this area up to all Londoners or is this still an immunity a local community for the people who call Mayfair home? Well I think it has to be both. I think the you know there's ever increasing pressure on all green spaces and greatness glass. It's one hundred yards from some important places in London and it's currently not working as hard as it should to bring people to those green spaces or to itself but at the same time. It's really important that the people who currently use it don't feel that they are negatively impacted by any sort of change. So we are working really hard to try and bring that community into the design process to make sure that you know what we create his great for them. Great for Neva says as well now for radio is a bit complicated. We have two people around the table. Say both cooled Ed but my other guests is called. Ed is the head of landscape way cursed and you work with Q. Gardens with the Rural Gardens Out Q. U. Brought on to help guide a competition to decide. I'm going to meet the winner in a second to decide what should happen to this square. What kinds of things that you wanted them to grow and everybody involved to think about when they reimagined what? This extraordinary thing. The the London Garden Square should be in the future. I suppose the first thing that struck me was the absence of a paper area and the chance to bring some extraordinary quality to green space. That a chance to create a public goods something that could enrich lives that everybody could share and I think in parallel to that just being conscious of the pressure that are green spaces are public green spaces under in London. But across the case cities you know ever decreasing budgets very very constrained windows for people to think creatively said a chance to do something that actually with grosvenor imagination resources could be extraordinary but could be for everybody that was the compelling thing. I wanted to focus on. We should as an international city as the home of very distinct solid horticulture near K. We should make something extraordinary in Grosvenor Square. There's almost no option and are very quickly realized that that was a possibility. Now we're in a time out of climate change of debate about what public realms should be. There's so many things to consider and I know the year when many of these gardens laid out and for many many years to come they formal. They were very considered and Kaffa in the way that they delivered they were they repeated patterns. That was a formats about the we've moved into world of like the highlight of wild garden is not something that you also wanted to be considered. Okay are we going to be a bit more formal? We're going to rethink the whole idea of what it means to plant a space out. Yeah I think me Grosvenor Square. Just big enough sir create an immersive environments a place where people can step in and briefly. Forget what was in the heads prior to working into Grosvenor Square says to utilize the space that we have to create something. That probably is a little bit. Wilder has a clear rhythm to its pops that plays to our senses desire to be in a in a meadow or a deport broad landscape and I think the really interesting thing about design is that you can achieve some extraordinary balances it can be deep an immersive and rich but it can also have an ornamental quality to it some of the very best wild landscapes appeal to our esthetic sense some of the very best designed landscapes focused sense of the world's and again we've got the opportunity the imagination the resources to some of those really kind of interesting dramatic kind of tensions. Well I'm very pleased to say the analysts whose here is the winner of a competition where your company's Tonkin Louis? The winner of the competition so many companies around the world entered. This wanted to be part of this process. You want through. You've got. The People here helped your no way. They tell us. What would you think was About your plans. That made them successful. What was the heart of your ideas? I think it's maybe our approach and we have this sort of mantra in the studio that we want to connect people to nature and we're also storytellers so we demonstrated how we might use these two approaches to redesign the square and in terms of nature. I think there's sort of nature garden skill but also what really excites architects is the different scales of nature. And more than ever we have these amazing tools digital tools allow us to seen to nature microscopically and aerial film footage so means we have a far greater understanding of nature and including the climate crisis where experiencing so as architects were actually excited about the era. We live in and the potential. Is that some of these problems present to us but the sort of moment to transform grosvenor square so the square is you're GonNa do lots of things we've touched on a little bit on your is a natural landscape bringing nature back into the city but as an Amina t- what kinds of things were you. Considering that is a place for play is a place for people to have lunch. How did you want to activate the space as it? Were like to think that there is a space everyone there I mean. I think the beauty of living in the cities that there's diversity you come next to someone who is very different to you so our experience from having designed many public room is that throughout the day. There's something for everyone so it should never feel like certain tribe is dominating and there should be some interest in the garden space. Let's there from grosvenor point of view we're hearing about storytelling and about community involvement. What did storytelling mean to you? When you were beginning to kind of judge will of the people who had entered the competition I mean it was very clear to us when we saw it kind of engaging with honoring Mike that the way they were approaching. The project was conceptually very unique. It was considering every element as a whole the ecology of the square as a system people's interaction with the square as part of that ecology. And I guess that really excited us the ability for us to look at all those different uses of the square and I guess those competing contrast that exist in how a public spaces used and how they could be reconciled in. The don't necessarily have to have either. You can have both and they might be in different areas or at different times or there's an opportunity to create an urban greenspace. That could be a new way of thinking about how these places operate. Just tell me again on the inside when you talk to communities around the scribe who wants to be involved again when something is being maybe not very successful but kind of private and a bit of a secret and when you begin to raise the idea that it should be a bigger public amenity. I'm talking about square. Which although embedded in May is a few hundred meters from artistry the throngs of their did that. Take some persuading in certain parts to say. Look we need shad is a bit more? I think we're at the very beginning of this price and I'm sure there you know the last thing we want to create is also tree in the middle of the square. But I think it is a big challenge and you talk to people in the community and I think everyone's very accepting of the idea of change because what's there is not good enough. You really have gross. Holly Hedge some trees of which about ninety percent of one species and this is not a biodiverse landscape. It doesn't facilitate different sorts of messing birds. Different animals or insects. And actually I think it's very easy to have that conversation about how a place should be better from an ecological perspective how you then balanced that with as you say the concerns that people understandably have about what has been a very quiet space becoming potentially much more densely populated is a real challenge and won the we all kind of at the beginning of a journey of understanding how to speak to those people and how to ensure that we don't negatively impact their experience and using about landscape. Just tell me what would be your Marcus for. Anna's project being success are we talking about on your side. You're going to be counting biodiversity. The how the actual kind of nature changes there. Yeah there's a number of things which are really affected. Greenspace can bring sissy so some environmental factors like lights management yet. Green Shade on hottest days mitigating pollution trees and trump's very very effective at creating a cleaner air zone. Also the way water hits the Square. You know is very persons at the moment. Is We have incessant. Rain really affected. Green spaces can absorb water percolated into the drains so those the more environmental elements it would also be fascinating to see the degree to which by diversity increases but also the degree to which people's happiness increases. The really effective greenspace is do improve people's well-being and potentially increase an approved physical health. You know suddenly if you've got an amazing route to work on foot which goes to Grosvenor Square Pepsi stopped taking the cab. All got on the underground you physically walked your sites and I know this is a a huge. An unintended consequences of the high line is former people. Walking to work now is a mixture of kind of qualitative aesthetic but also environmental things to I'd love to see improve. Outta those are some potential wins. The were saying that they can be kind of unintended consequences and good ones. But did you begin to think of that throughout your design process how you could make this a place? That was more navigable by people on foot. Did you wonder about how you team up with? Grosvenor and the council maybe to talk about the traffic and how it fits the nature of the square. How it fits into the whole neighborhood. Were you already thinking about these things in the beginning? Yeah absolutely I if a place is legible than it makes people connected to another place and in doing so you realize the distance from HP is actually quite short so you would end up walking rather than going on transport or taking a cab so legibility and character a sense of quality about the space that will attract people there even when they're not passing through so there's a reason to go there. There's some sort of Biden entity also for the local community. Really say this is our square. And it's a quintessential London square but vigor and it has more character of a park but it's uniquely it can only be in Grosvenor Square. And just tell me again. When you're you're making this park. We touched on the the notion of the climate is changing and the plant. We have and the way that we have to look after these things. Are you trying to create a space that is low on upkeep as well at the beginning because many of the parks and gardens we have in? London have had to change the nature or struggling because some as a drier and hotter and wind has more unpredictable. Did you think about all of this? In the whole process of designing the space we talked about sort of guardians rather than maintenance crew so part of the community that would come on board who would love to have a garden but also it's not just maintenance future proofing garden design. I mean as architecture you know we never foresaw.

"The health of the american economy and our security but are a lot more skeptical when we preached the virtues of disciplined american leadership a lot more skeptical about the disciplined part because of instances of overreach an indiscipline as well so it's gonna take a lot of effort in a post trump era whenever that moment comes i think to narrow that disconnect and rebuild a sense of trust i in disciplined american leadership in the world. How would you go about making that case to the american public and i asked because i get to go around the country. I do a lot of talks walks and one of the questions that comes up variables about diplomacy. I note that a fair number. Americans are skeptical of the idea that you can have a foreign service service have diplomats that can work equally well for republican presidents in democratic presidents and so their notion. Is that somehow these diplomats must working for one party against the other party an idea. I think has gotten a lot more cachet with all this talk about. We put it in the air quotes the deep state warming. It won't surprise you. I just think that's a badly mistaken notion. I served as you mentioned before jim ten secretaries estate five presidents across administrations rations of both parties and i was very high positions by presidents in both parties the number three in the state department at the end of the george w bush administration was kept on to serve in that role for hillary clinton and then you know eventually became the deputy secretary for both clinton and for john kerry as well so i was proud to serve administrations rations of both parties you know my commitment is a professional diplomat was the best interest of our country and to serve whatever administration was elected and i think that is true of my colleagues who are serving today in the state department and i just think it's a crock to think of a deep state and the state department today <hes> you know if anything thing people are almost loyal to a fault they wanna be led. They want their expertise to be taken into account not always heated and it's not like professional diplomats have a monopoly on wisdom as as i written in my own book i got a lot of things wrong too but i think having that professional cadre of diplomats at this moment on the international landscape is especially important horton for the united states. It's not fundamentally a question of resources. I mean the truth. Is that you know i think. Most americans sometimes assumed that we spend a lot more money on diplomacy and development then we really do. It's less than one percent of the federal budget. Every year you know in the last white house budget proposal a month or two ago <hes> you know the the president proposed forty billion dollars for all of american diplomacy and all of our assistance programs overseas now. That's a lot of money. I understand stand that but he also proposed seven hundred fifty billion dollars seventeen times more for the u._s. Military course you're going to need a strong u._s. Military you never get very far in diplomacy almasy unless it's backed up by military and economic leverage but i think we have to be really careful about the imbalanced that's beginning to develop and so i think a carefully funded ended professional american diplomatic core. That's going to be loyal to whatever administration gets elected is an extremely important tool and it's far cheaper in terms of the cost in american blood and treasure to at least test whether diplomacy backed up by economic leverage by you know the resources that the u._s. military very brings to bear. It's a lot more effective to at least attempt to see if diplomacy can get you where you wanna go rather than resorting prematurely or too quickly clue to the use of force yet most generals and admirals. I've spoken with agree with you. General slash secretary mattis who said if you're not gonna fund diplomats be prepared to buy more ammunition to communicate that idea but gates you know is another former secretary of defense used to remind people that are more members of american military bands ends than there are professional american diplomats. I have nothing against military music as i said i grew up as an army brat but i think that reflects an imbalance so there's been a lot of talk about the state state department losing talent under president trump. How worried are you about the health of the state department as an institution particularly about the foreign service which you remember for more than three decades i do worry about the state department being hollowed out in this era as i said before it's not as if the trump administration invented the drift the american diplomacy there have been challenges before i would also add that state department itself and the career foreign service has some renewing of its own to do we always talk about the importance of gardening as a metaphor for american diplomacy you know our ability took prune and we'd on the international landscape in promoting american interests but we have always done a good job with our own patch of turf our own patch of garden as well their individual foreign service officers who can be incredibly courageous and resilient and innovative as an institution the state prominent israeli accused of being agile or two full of initiative so if we want to make a case for the significance of american diplomacy and the resources that it requires you got to demonstrate we can get our own act together to which means delaring making us a more agile institution solution as well but having said all those things you know i think there is a really important case to be made at this moment on the international landscape. When we're no longer the singular dominant the player we were before to reinvest in diplomacy and it's going to take a lot longer to fix them. It's taken to break especially over the last two and a half years not just with if you know the number of senior officers who have left in many cases prematurely i'm but also because you know there's been a significant drop off as much as fifty percent in the first couple the use of this administration in young people in some not so young people applying to join the foreign service as well and so it can be reversed but we're doing a lot of corrosive damage image to ourselves. I'm afraid so what advice do you have to that. Young person may be not so young person who's thinking about trying to join the foreign service given the current context. Oh i i'm. I'm still a huge believer in the foreign service. <hes> i encourage i do a lotta university talks today and you know connection with promotion my new book i'm uh-huh and i encourage people have for me no substitute for the professional satisfaction as well as the personal satisfaction. I got out of public service and service as an an american diplomat you know all those years back when i had just taken the written exam for the foreign service at our old embassy on grosvenor square london and i had passed and i was thinking about whether to pursue do this to the next step. I remember writing a letter to my dad. This was in the era when you actually wrote letters rather than did emails and asking them what is advice was and you know he was by by then two star army general and as i said before really respected his commitment to public service and i remember one line of what he wrote back to me said nothing can make you prouder than to to serve your country with honor it didn't register with me at the time but i spent the next three and a half decades learning the wisdom that advice and so i- despite all the difficulties and i'm i'm not naive about them. You know in the state department and this administration for the united states in the world all the physical risks that diplomats and their families have to run today serving their country overseas. I still think it's an extremely important profession and noble one as well so i encourage young people to apply for the foreign service and to join it. I i think there's gonna be an opportunity to renew the state department and the.
