Média Designing streets as public spaces in Northern climate cities

Designing streets as public spaces in Northern climate cities

This public conference was presented by the Montreal Urban Ecology Centre on February 16, 2010 at auditorium G10, Macdonald Harrington Building, McGill University.


Urban planning that makes attractive places to enjoy the climate naturally, improves the walking and biking conditions, and this, even when the snow hits almost all year long; why can’t we think people first?  A lot can be learned from Copenhagen, when it comes to making room for everybody and bring a people-oriented approach to planning. From China to Greenland, and New York, cold climate is all about building a culture and “creating invitations” throughout the year, as emphasizes Kristian S. Villadsen, so we can meet each other in liveable streets and public spaces. Although designing streets for all its users sometimes interfere with other agendas whether they are of technical or political character, this conference is inspiring to find new ways so that visions can be transformed into reality.
