Designing good city streets
Designers are creating good areas to walk.They find out exactly what people need for a pleasant walk. American architects Allan Jacobs and Elizabeth Macdonald, are an example. They focus on:
- 2. The feel of a space, but also of shelter and much attention to trees, green.
- 3. Creating sidewalks wide enough, considering benches.
- 4. Putting playgrounds in where children and (grand) parents can enjoy their fantasy, climbing, jumping and can play games such as hide-and-seek.
- Other examples are the works of architect Jan Gehl and of the Arup Design Group.
