Urb-i public space transformations

Ferenciek tere, Budapest, Hungary.
The layouts of most cities are made for cars, not people. Brazilian urban planning collective Urb-i scanned Google Street View for public space redesigns that favour pedestrians over vehicles. They began curating the before and after images in a gallery, to showcase public spaces that put pedestrians and cyclists  first. It's amazing what even a little tweaking can do to make urban landscapes more walkable.
