Smoke Square

In terms of reaching the highest percentage of smoking people, Glasgow will definitely be the winner. At least among the cities that I've been studying. A good example of this was today's study. I went to one of those little squares that you can find between office buildings and its prime use was not coffee shopping instead it was smoking. People would sit by themselves and with a cigarette and then go back into work. I'm not entirely sure why there are so much more people smoking in this city, but it is definitely a massive shift from Singapore.

This pattern has also made me wonder if you could encourage/discourage smoking by how you design a city? Or if smoking is too much of a behavioral thing that needs to be worked on in other ways? At the moment I can not give you an answer but I will definitely keep on thinking about that one.
