Open Call for Complete Streets: Submissions Wanted.
"We’re motivated by the rapid renewal of interest worldwide in creating and restoring high-quality streets, and particularly by the progress made in the past couple of decades to creatively incorporate better provisions for walking and cycling in the new generation of streets. At the same time, as designers we’re motivated by the recent crop of street projects to push for a raising of the bar, because despite of all their “completeness," too many recent street fixes lack beauty, wholeness and a sense of place. In particular, we've noticed that with all the new attention being paid to striping and paving, there’s been a creeping neglect of other essential components, like shaping the street space three-dimensionally and visually. But of course you all know this!"
On a final note, Massengale says "we're hoping to make a very quick, If This Is Tuesday, It Must Be Belgium type of tour to look at new examples of Complete Streets, Woonerfs, rebuilt boulevards, etc. So if you'd like to suggest the best European examples to visit, please do that too."
