Metropolis Think Tank

On September 19, 2017, KieranTimberlake and Metropolis Magazine will host a Think Tank discussion on Pedestrians, Bikes, and Cars: Designing a Balanced Multi-Modal 21st Century City.  

Can we re-envision a historic city like Philadelphia to balance the needs of pedestrians, cyclists, and automobiles? 
 
In 2015, several square miles of Center City Philadelphia were blocked for a Papal visit. Suddenly, citizens glimpsed urban space relieved of the usual congestion, smog, and anxiety caused by car traffic. The event sparked regularly-scheduled free street events that opened areas for people to engage the city differently. It also raised broader questions: How can we holistically reimagine our streets to improve quality of life and the environment? And what would such a radical transformation look—and sound—like?
