Open Streets Threaten to Make Cities Cool

BY JENN GRAHAM
@ PECHAKUCHA URBAN INNOVATION MONTH ON APR 01, 2014

Like many superheroes, Jenn Graham didn’t choose to become a crusader for urban good — she was catapulted into it, quite literally. After breaking her arm when her bicycle tire got stuck in a drain grate, she began campaigning to make small changes to her home city of Atlanta. What started with grate replacements across became open-street activities hosting nearly 100 thousand citizens; a force that leads us to question how cities ought to be designed.

Reclaiming the Streets of Chennai

Aswathy Dilip talks about a citizen's initiative called Namma Chennai Namakke, for which she is taking the lead in gathering the support of Chennai citizens, including automobile owners, to embrace car-free streets on Sunday mornings. The space it is hoped can be used to promote healthy and happy lifestyles, and social capital through community building activities. When Dilip is not passionately spending time at work, she spends it with her naughty little son.

Complete Streets

BY STEPHEN O'MALLEY
@ DESIGN FRINGE POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON MAR 03, 2015

Stephen O'Malley of Civic Engineers is exploring the dynamics of streets since the 1950's  and how that may contribute to the lifestyle we are interested in. Now that we are all confronted with the street traffic, its domination and its perceived "freedom", we need more harmony and balance between creativity, science, imagination and nature.
