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.
