Urban centre, people space

Hirsch Time Lapse from GOED 4U Vastgoedmanagement on Vimeo.

Urban spaces should serve people. The moment that cars are removed from the equation (or at least reduced in the equation), then spaces become quieter, friendlier and people-centric. Watching this great piece of time-lapse video from Amsterdam proves to be quite telling. Cars are not the predominant form of transportation in this scene –  trams steal the show (as do bikes, though the movement of pedestrians and cyclists is so swift it’s hard to follow them).

Enjoy 1 minute 48 seconds of low carbon serenity.
