The area, however, is now a city of architectural ghosts, an abandoned site only in use for anual events like concerts and festivals. The Forum is less a park than a huge parking-space like concrete-desert - the antipode of green urban design: asphalt surfacse replace brownfield land.
Ironically, the site is the favored background of car campaigns: it makes car look green - without green.
