“Make the Street a Place Again”

“How we have been designing away our public spaces in urban areas for the movement of vehicles only…”Fantastic video from the e2 series on the current and pending future issues facing our urban environments. Love how they mention the public realm in relationship to the idea that streets take up 20-30% of our cities but that they’ve been given over almost completely to the automobile in the past 60 years. As urbanization continues to tip from the 50% of people living in cities today, to even greater percentages, we will need to return to a more dynamic use of this crucial space for a place of future generations to progress society.”
