WEBINAR: Path as Place: The Experiential side of Transportation

11:00 A.M. - 12:30 P.M.


HOSTED BY: Urban Design & Preservation Division

The purpose of streets is changing. As they did for centuries before the era of the motor vehicle, many of our streets are returning to memorable multimodal corridors and better places for social and economic exchange. But, this return doesn’t mean our approach to street design should return to a century’s old approach. How we plan, design, and engage with people in streets design needs to evolve and we are seeing that happen today. Through these changes in our approach to transportation planning and design we are able to create environments that safely and comfortably allow for all the various modes and activities that happen in our streets in modern life. Two of the most important changes are: (1) interdisciplinary collaboration and (2) a focus on the experiential aspects of transportation. Interdisciplinary collaboration is essential to create smart street design solutions. The memorable experience of streets – arguably the largest part of our public realm – is born of collaboration between planners, designers, engineers, and stakeholders. Creating an environment of collaboration can be a challenge, but it is so important to do so from the beginning of a project. This session will explore how the transportation planning and design process is changing, the challenges to that change, and how we can continue to advance the process. Speakers will call upon their years of experience in transportation planning and design, highlighting the importance of creating the right team structure and a values-driven approach to street design.
