Eslanade Walk, Toronto
European cities offer a roadmap for life with fewer cars. There’s no greater example of this throughout Europe than the pedestrian plaza. Shops and restaurants line their edges, but the plazas themselves are left unobstructed. In America, by contrast, we have a tendency to view open space that isn’t a park as a commodity. In New York, for example, in public plazas the landscape is littered with chairs, tables and aggressive advertisements. Americans need to learn to love negative space. Few good examples in our collection =>
* Grotemarkt, Gouda, Nederland. Gouda’s famous cheese market takes place here Each Thursday morning
* Plato, Beograd, Srbija. Gathering space for the students of the nearby university and book lovers.
* Rua Sao Tome, Lisbon, Portugal. Artist Vhils expanded street art in spectacular fashion; tribute to Fado diva Amália Rodrigues.
