Re:Streets - Streets Reconsidered
re:Streets is a multidisciplinary collaboration focused on the planning, design and construction of streets as a method for improving our built environment. It pushes beyond the standards to explore the future of streets and what America’s roadways in small towns and cities would be like if they were designed for living, instead of driving. Project partners, MIG, Inc., America Walks, Landscape Structures, Ironsmith, DeepRoot and PLAE, Inc. facilitated the re:Streets Charrette in July 2011. During this session a multi-disciplinary group of more than 120 professionals from both the public and private sectors worked together on specific topics relating to re-envisioning the American street. As solutions are tried and streets are built or remodeled, the results will be added to the re:Streets interactive digital manual, creating an evolving, collaborative reference for improving our communities.
