Many levels of seating, each area separated from the next by potted flowers. Just this one face of one raised seating area created room for many to sit. There were even cushions provided for added comfort.

The arrangement of pots meant that people could sit alone or could sit in groups. Unlike mid afternoon, during the lunch hour, this plaza was ordinarily bathed in sunlight.
