Cycling in style. NYC, Central Park. 1941
It took 5 years of intense community outreach and dialogue with the city, but the Masonic Avenue Street Pedestrian and Bike Friendly redesign study /San Francisco/ was finally passed.
The Boulevard Proposal has been approved for Masonic Ave. in San Francisco!
SF’s first (and maybe west coast’s? are there any in NYC/east coast?) grade-separated cycle track!!! like those in Europe, where the cycle tracks are higher than the road, but a little lower than the sidewalk.
The plan also includes a new tree-planted median, better crosswalks, and bus bulbs to make it easier to board MUNI.

Best of luck for Festarch for their activities. Though we doubt they will need luck. So we rather wish them sunny weather!
The forth edition of Festarch starts tomorrow in Perugia (Italy). Until 10 June the festival by Abitare will focus on the theme of Cities within the city, those informal settlements self-created by its inhabitants that challange rational urban planning and move city boundaries. It will present a full programme of events including a talk with Giancarlo Mazzanti and Michael Maltzan about the role of public space.
What are you drawing? We are happy that so many people participated in the urban drawing workshop!
Rosy is not just for adults! This little girl and her stuffed toy enjoyed playing table tennis in the pink bubble!
We want to quote Rebecca Solnit today. We couldn’t agree more with her! reSITE Festival would like to see the public actively shaping their city. We can’t leave this job only for the architects, politicians and city planners.
