Calm before the storm…

Posted on August 22, 2013

Shutting the streets to traffic on a Sunday provides a very human perspective to the available space within what are normally quite dense cities.  Its also makes Sunday feel like a true day away from work.  The constant noise and movement of traffic can give cities the ‘always awake’ feeling.  But without traffic they change their character, and priorities. People come first, and the stress level is tangibly lower.
