re:Streets – re:Imagining, re:Purposing, and re:Constructing Our Most Valuable Public Space
Many of us take our streets for granted. They are places where we drive cars; some of them accept buses or bicycles or plain old pedestrians; and they transport us from home to work to shopping to entertainment: from A to B and from B to A. But streets can be so much more than that. They occupy between 30% and 40% of the land area of most cities, and almost all of the public space.
In this webinar, you’ll hear from those who have put this concept into practice and find out more about how to re:Street your streets. re:Streets is a multi-disciplinary collaboration focused on the planning, design and construction of streets as a method for improving our built environment. It pushes beyond the current standards to explore the future of streets and what America’s roadways would be like if they were designed for living, instead of just driving.
