How will the streetscape look and function in 20, 50, and 100 years?
The urban streetscape is facing increasing demands for space from a variety of users – pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, a spike in deliveries to homes and offices, food trucks, mobile commercial spaces, and more – without recalibrating the permitting or design. This event featured a series of presentations that asked urban planners, designers, architects, and others: What is the street of the future? We reviewed new visions for pleasant, productive streetscapes that balance the needs of transportation infrastructure, commercial activity, and residents young and old.
Presented with the Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management. The Rudin Center for Transportation at NYU’s Wagner School aims to strengthen our understanding of all modes of transportation through research, public forums, and educational programs.
