About the research
Exploring the pedestrians realm—an overview of insights needed for developing a generative systems approach to walkability
The dissertation concerns pedestrians, walking and sojourning in public space, and what is needed to better support (potential) pedestrians. Walking as an essential form of mobility. In policy however it is largely neglected. The dissertation explores how the system is put together and works for pedestrians. It also explores what authorities can do to improve conditions for pedestrians, walking and sojourning in public space. It sketches how effective and fair approaches can be established. A number of hurdles need to be overcome.
