Stealing space from ourselves

During the past decades we silently witnessed the greatest territorial grab in history: the loss of our public space to cars.

The way cars manage to make life miserable in cities all over the world is shocking, but at the same time, the urban mobility solutions for better cities are spectacular and more and more people realize their cities can be radically more pleasant, healthy and efficient.
Still, most people have a hard time imagining anything different than what they are used to seeing around them, and because of that, they keep asking for another parking space, another car lane, etc. And, for decades, those were the ideas that were put in practice. And they failed again and again.

On this blog I will try to explain why those things are actually making the situation worse and also talk about the simple ways to solve these problems.
It’s time to take our public space back and make city life a lot more beautiful.
