Bicycle Urbanism by Design - Considering Design as a Placemaking Solution for Liveable Cities This is the current talk that Mikael travels with at the moment and it's proved to be the most sought-after. For 7000 years, streets were public domain. The most democratic spaces in the history of homo sapiens. The automobile changed that. He suggests using direct human observation and basic design principles in urban planning, in order to try and reverse the damage done to our cities by a century of traffic engineering.
It's time to move on. Anthropology and Design can make the difference in our quest to modernise our cities. Mikael covers the importance of following Desire Lines and highlights Copenhagenize Design Co.'s work with their Desire Line Tool, as well as presenting the thoughts and observations of some of the leading minds in the field.Length: 40-60 minutes.
