The idea to (re-)invent spaces for pedestrians is not new. The designers themselves got inspired by another New York pedestrian project — the make-over of the traffic heavy Times Square into a place to sit back, relax and enjoy the traffic-calmed city. And here we showed how parking places can be turned into dance floors and power-nap spot, or how the city became a planter.
In the past we featured this nice prank to divide the New York sidewalks into a specific lane for tourists and a specific lane for New Yorkers. We’re wondering on which side of the sidewalk the Softwalk kits will pop up more!
