Reclaiming the Sidewalk in City Design | Sustainable Cities Collective

See on Scoop.itUrban Choreography

No longer can sidewalks be value engineered out of the equation, disconnected or relegated to a single use. They are our most straight-forward and economical health care plan.

Donovan Gillman‘s insight:

Between the loss of sidewalks to cars, motorbiles and generally everything that has no other place designed for it,  we are more happy to thread our way through seated people that other kinds of objects – however it should not be forgotten thqat the sidealk is still only part of the street – and we should be taking more if it back from the other objects that use all of it -cars, trucks and busses – making space for people and their things.
