Many 1960s buildings are really great

but feel intimidating

because at street level

they were designed to interact with cars

and not people.

An example is the National Theatre,

which when refurbished removed car access

and is now an inviting building.

All we need to do is remove cars

(and a lot of delivery vehicles

- see eg. Pedal Me for an example

of a better way to move stuff around)

 

and our cities will become welcoming spaces once more.
