1 year of Pedestrian Space!

One year ago I established @pedestrianspace on Instagram as a digital space to begin to explore issues of walkability and media.

The project has since grown with this website (launched in January 2021) and led to many connections around the world with people interested in and working with issues of walkability and urbanism.

ūüď∑ I snapped the site’s founding signature photo on Leonhardtstra√üe in Charlottenburg (Berlin) one Summer day in 2018. Locally, it is just an average sidewalk and city space but I recall being struck by its incredible width- ample room for many uses.

I find issues of walkability extremely exciting, but they are simultaneously extremely mundane- about practicality, common sense planning and designing spaces and places for people.
