Abstract

We want to correct the legacy of modernist traffic planning in a city environment, where there are no streets – just roads. A car-oriented traffic milieu can become a lively street and a site of community and various user groups. In the spirit of circular economy, we hack the habitat.
Project team: Aalto’s master-level architecture course (degree programme of Architecture with Urban Studies and Planning) and Service Design Programme from Royal College of Art, London.
