For several decades, cities have been designed around the car, not the person, and definitely not the person without a car. At the same time, the aesthetic and sensory experience of moving around a city, including our interaction with buildings and public space, has been dismissed as unimportant, as we have focused on the city as a place for big business.

I would love for the main question we ask during the continuous citymaking process to be: How does/might the built environment, public space and public transit facilitate people’s ability to get their various needs met, including their needs for positive social interaction, self expression, and overall happiness and health?
