The Global Street Design Guide at Habitat III, Quito

Join the Global Designing Cities Team, led by their Chair, Janette Sadik-Khan at Habitat III in Quito, Ecuador from the 17th -19th of October!

Sessions hosted by the global team will range from presentations and discussions, to pop up events and active, audience engaging workshops. The presentations on the content of the Global Street Design Guide will explain multiple benefits of street design and discuss how the ‘People’ and ‘Place’ approach is the way forward to designing urban streets. These sessions will showcase street designs that challenge the status quo, highlight best practice examples from around the world, and bring to light ‘ What is possible?’ in the public realm.

The workshop activities will give the audience an opportunity to practice a ‘people’ and ‘place’ approach, on real street examples. The aim is to encourage the audience to think of a more equitable spatial distribution of the street, taking every user into consideration. Participants will create street designs with the help of interactive–physical– visual tools, that they can held and used to explore different street designs.
