VelotopiaThe Production of Cyclespace
> The book imagines city layouts that would make urban life more productive, comfortable, social and fun
> The first bike-centric model of urban planning and building design
> Fleming gives cycling what Jane Jacobs wanted for walking
The Dutch use cycling in combination with trains to connect regions. Other nations are using cycling to make historical city centres liveable again. But what if cycling became the key organizing principle for urban growth and the design of new buildings?
See how the most connected future cities will be those that put cycling before walking and public transport and see why such cities would not only be healthy and green, but fairer and more accessible than the cities we know. This is a book for all those shaping cities and buildings (designers, planners, students, advocates, etcetera) who sense a bigger potential for cycling.
Dr Steven Fleming is an architectural theorist and historian and a leading international figure in bicycle urbanism.
