The City at Eye Level for Kids


The City at Eye Level

Public space quality is the backbone of a sustainable city. Great streets, places where you intuitively want to stay longer, human scale interaction between buildings and streets, ownership by users, placemaking and good plinths (active ground floors) and a people-centred approach based on the user’s experience – that is what The City at Eye Level is all about.

The book

We help cities develop these places, in collaborative networks throughout the world. In partnership with co-authors in our network, we have collected articles and cases about the street at eye level, with topics such as the history of the plinth, street-level experience as a cyclist, the rise of cities hit hard by the recession, the strength of markets and many international examples of successful and progressive projects. But in both editions of The City at Eye Level, there are only articles written about the experience of adults in the street and in a place, seen from an adult perspective.


Coming January first: the start of the European Placemaking Network

Via our networks The City at Eye Level, Re:Kreators, New Europe, the Placemaking Leadership Council and others, for many years we have been working with practitioners all over the world creating better cities and great places.

How people connect to a place is fundamental for human scale, for interaction, for innovation, for a healthy and joyful life, and for a sustainable living environment. Placemaking is fun. Placemaking is fundamental. Placemaking is quicker, lighter, cheaper – placemaking is a shared investment for the long term.
