Safe Streets for Baltimore: Adapting stream daylighting idea and methods for streets.
Project -Safe Streets for Baltimore, focused on enhancing safety for its citizen by preventing traffic accidents through street, road, transportation system re-design. This required innovations in current traffic calming strategies through design modifications at micro-scale and systemic applications at macro-scale.
Additionally, we innovated, by adapting the idea of day-lighting streams, to the streets. This was done by scraping layers of physical infrastructure and revealing history – street car in this case, which may have persisted through our transportation corridor. This in combination with place-making design interventions, humanizes our urban environment and provides Baltimore city with streets which are Complete, Green, Safe and thus LIveable Streets.
