Reclaiming the Street
A discussion with Bryan Goebel, Kit Hodge, and David Winslow moderated by John Bela
Referred to by many names; woonerfs (Netherlands), verkehrsberuhigter bereich (Germany) home zones (UK), and
shared spaces (US); these streets prioritize space for pedestrians and bicyclists. By design they remove cars as the primary form of transportation and allow a more holistic mix of transit options. How are US cities beginning to embrace new approaches to planning our city streets? What lessons have we learned from models in European cities that are helpful in designing more inclusive spaces? What are models in San Francisco and other American Cities that we can look to?
Join us for an evenings discussion with Bryan Goebel, the Editor of SF StreetsBlog; Kit Hodge, the Director of the Great Streets Project; and Architect and Urban Planner David Winslow who recently redesigned Linden Alley. The evenings discussion will be moderated by John Bela of REBAR.
Founded in 2006 the Studio for Urban Projects is an art and design collaborative that seeks to advance civic engagement and further public dialogue. Our inter-discilinary and research-based projects aim to provoke change by re- framing our perceptions of the city and physically transforming elements of the built environ-ment. Our storefront space in the San Francisco Mission District is a public venue for the staging of workshops, talks, film screenings and meals.
