“Beaches are ordered without
being controlled. No one is in charge.
Beaches are model civic spaces:
self-regulating, democratic in
spirit, mildly carnivalesque.
Underlying is a simple idea:
the beach is a commons where people
can self-organise in play (.....)
There are no zoning regulations,
fences nor white lines to tell you
where to go...”
