The Upcycled City: Reclaiming the Street

The Upcycled City: Reclaiming the Street | Communication design | Scoop.it

Despite an admittedly strong preference for the automobile, Los Angeles and other forward-thinking cities are now re-allocating public (and private) land away from the car so that people can use the space for other purposes. 

The automobile remains the best transportation option in all but a few U.S. cities. However, we can strike a better balance with how we use the precious resource of space in our cities. By dedicating so much land to traveling comfortably and quickly by car, we miss out on using that land to create interesting places to travel to. While some communities may still require copious amounts of parking and travel lanes, others are developing different neighborhood priorities, like green space, local business presence, or better biking and walking infrastructure. We need to plan for flexibility, for the accommodation of what we cannot yet imagine.

The Life of the Connected Commuter - Infographic

Social’s on the move. Welcome to the city hall that never sleeps—where people are more likely to tweet about a pothole or support bike lanes on Facebook than go to a city council meeting.


City governments that want to keep a finger on the pulse of their transit arteries don’t need an invitation. They just need to know how to listen, which will help them figure out the life of the connected commuter, as depicted in our graphic with IBM.

Bicycle roundabout in the sky in the Netherlands, Hovenring (video)

The Netherlands is known for its bicycle-friendly streets and bike paths, but even this bike leader has intersections that are excessively large and centered too much around cars. In the case of one such intersection between Eindhoven and Veldhoven, planners and designers created the Hovenring, a beautiful bicycle and pedestrian roundabout elevated above the roadway.
