Spanscapes documents the experience of walking through communal gardens in Span estates in London, Oxford, and Kent. Span estates have long been admired for their holistic approach to landscape design. Through text and photography, this book explores the relationship between Span’s ethos of creating community and the organisation of green space at the estates.
