Will the pedestrian survive? Or, more precisely: Will potential walkers feel adequately protected against being run over, enough so that they make the choice to walk? Activeness are also bikeable cities, because bicycles thrive in environments that support pedestrians and also because bikeability makes driving less necessar. Thus, there is a need to invest in human walking experience which increases personal satisfaction. And, while working on innovative plans, a key characteristic has to be flexibility in terms of center standards as well as the core architecture urban planning in general. Given this optimism, it can be rightly observed that sidewalks can turn out to be standard fields wherein portability advances will be encouraged-plan and guidelines should deliberately address more extensive standards. The method of information collection was through secondary data articles and research done by scholars and primary data collection through time lapse and photography. It also includes digital manipulation techniques using softwares like photoshop. It gives power to imagine uniquely. The given research studies various aspects of designing streets with two purposeful objectives. Firstly, how do we encourage the public to walk insteading driving or using public transportation, creating experiences which encourage active sidewalks for the pedestrians.These objectives have been set up with the understanding of establishing the behavior of consumers on the streets. The experimentation included both physical as well as theological techniques. Furthermore, case studies have been utilized from many private developers who show creating a new concept of streets. Which can provide further analysis towards developing separate cases such as these to achieve the objective.


The design idea and structure acts as a meeting place for locals. Starting at the street the community place rises upwards in a series of active play areas which led to an elevated city. You can walk up, climb, jump or hop, sit or sleep, meet & greet, host a group on the street. Creating an experience which makes the public active as well as creating an unforgettable memory of the journey instead of traditional idea of sidewalk.


Performers may do acrobatics, animal tricks, balloon twisting, caricatures, clowning, comedy, contortions, dance, singing, fire skills, flea circus, fortune-telling, juggling, magic, mime, musical performance, puppeteering, snake charming, storytelling or reciting poetry or prose, street art such as sketching and painting, street theatre.


The ultimate street exploration involves closing down an entire street, or set of streets, to traditional traffic. Here Bertolini focuses on two expressions of this effort: ciclovias (“open streets”) and “play” streets.
