Modern cities are designed for cars. But the city of Barcelona is testing out an urban design trick that can give cities back to pedestrians.

It is a very narrow mindset that is discriminatory to those who can not escape the automobile concept. When I think about the relationship between residence and workplace, I have had to drive up to 120km away from my place of residence. It is only when the distance has been less than 10km that it has been possible to drive by bike or public transport. Over that distance, it takes too long time without the automobile concept in East Jutland, Denmark. It is a commuter region that has grown along with motorway extensions over the last 45 years covering an area of approx. 7,000km2 and 1 mio. inhabitants.

3:33, huh, the example of superblocks in barcelona is in a place called Eixample. Example, Eixample. Coincidence?

Our infrastructure is ranked pretty close to or is last by the American society of civil engineers. We need to throw some budget in there, I'll doubt Trump has ever thought about it

Stop complaining about these small sidewalks. In Indonesia 🇮🇩 we don't have proper sidewalks, India 🇮🇳 elsewhere. Consider yourself lucky you have clean streats, clean air and a nice environment.

This makes sense in tourist heavy areas with good weather and a grid street system. Most American cities aren’t like this.

cyclists love to pass cars in these city streets. If you make it only paedoestrian.................how will these cyclists get their rocks off? It's not any fun passing somebody who is walking.

I love this. I really can't get a driver's license due to anxiety issues and end up driving my bike and taking the bus around. As a freelancer IT person, most clients tell me that I'm crazy, because it literally takes 3h by bus to get to a place sometimes (I live in the south of Orlando). I'm privileged in the sense that I live with my mom, so I don't need to pay rent and stuff like that for now (I don't get a regular job because I can't legally, I'm a F2 visa) but I still gotta pay my HRT and psychiatric bills and welp, those cost a lot so this would help me, the world, and other people, so much. You shouldn't have to have a car to get a job (yet all the ones I've seen list having a car a must, even living within walking distance)

Sorry. Fake AF. I live in Barcelona and here are the worst drivers I’ve seen any where else. They don’t know how not to speed. 10km/h? Not happening. Anarchy 100% they would speed 80km/h from a traffic light to another... and I live in Eixample. Very F dangerous

Cool concept but lame Eurocentrism. The narrator credits grid patterns to some Spanish dude in the 1850s when Mayans and people of Teotihuacán had grid cities centuries earlier.

Why not just plan and create Parks, with car parking lots, instead of stealing the streets from the cars? People are driving the cars, they stop at a parking lot, and walk on a park, or something like that. So a city that has good streets for cars is also a good city for people. About the pollution, just make the transition to electic vehicles. Problem solved. Everybody happy. Beware of this kind of "Urban Mobility", that seems to be willing to get rid of our best mobility tool, the cars.

Can this happen in the US? Sounds like the prime candidate would be an older city, planned with a grid, with narrower streets, where mixed-use development is increasingly popular. I know a place.

I love this idea of super blocks. Growing up i split time between the outskirts of la and tokyo, two opposite extremes of the most driver centric city and the most public transit based city. i saw the downsides of both extremes, rush hour commutes suck in both cities. Now living in the outskirts of la, i hate the many disadvantages of a driver centric city and this super block idea sounds awesome, but sadly it wouldn't work where i live. There are a few isolated places in la where it would work. Downtown, parts of Hollywood, the westside, certain beach areas. But anything outside the city center and there is no where near enough density. The zoning is also all wrong, with huge plots zoned just for residential, and huge plots zoned for commercial with huge parking lots and roads. Maybe 15 years ago, there was a push for mixed use residential/commercial zoning, but sadly it didn't take off. And that's because all they did was add residential floors to the top of commercial floors. There was no push to move away from car centric transit, use super blocks, increase public transit options and effectiveness, eliminate huge parking lots or increase pedestrain friendly space. Thousands of square miles in the surrounding suburbs would have to be tore down and rebuilt from the ground up with thousands of miles of subway and light rail systems needing to be built from scratch. Meanwhile, tokyo's mass transit and pedestrian system is wonderful, if you are not traveling during commute hours. If you are commuting, you will be inevitably packed and squeezed into a crammed subway car with people smashed into you at all sides. Automobile traffic is even more paralyzing than la, with tiny streets not built for cars zig zagging through dense city blocks jam packed with pedestrians, expensive parking that's hard to find anywhere, and pricey highways that are also gridlocked. Only solution i could think of for tokyo would be a smaller population. It's already dense with a built out mass transit system. The superblock concept would be beneficial there but much more change would be needed to solve it's transit problems.

Take the nine block squaares, eminent domain the center block and build an ARCOLOGY in the center block. An ARCOLOGY is a massively big single building that is mixed use residential/commercial/office space. Add into the surrounding corridor a pair of tunnels to service the arcology's vehicle needs and route a subway stop at the arcology, and you would have an abundantly vibrant 9 square block area that is renown around the world for it's inventiveness, efficiency and walkability.

I was just in Barcelona 2 weeks ago. There's a lot of motorcycles. They have great public transportation. I rode buses, the metro, a tram, and trains to the airport. The city was very walkable, but it was sort of scary, because cars drove really fast down the narrow streets and I almost got hit on 5 separate occasions. What these pictures of the streets don't show is the bad smells in some parts. I was just walking when all of a sudden I smelled Urine and garbage. But it wasn't a strong smell.

Let's talk the truth here. cars suck. they are dangerous, heavy, expensive, noisy and unhealthy. I always hated cars. especially driving them. They are boring and outdated. And everyone who is looking for a goal in life, picks an expencive 4 wielded heavy dangerous metal and sets it as a life goal. How stupid

i live near vienna and in theory the city is designed perfectly for traffic. the only problem is that our green and left wing politicians made the roadstrip for the bycical like 2meter wide and added one way road where they can so its gotten really annoying to drive in vienna. the worst part is if there is a demo on the ring which is the mainstreet in the center of vienna, I cant legally leave the city twoards my house. either i make 4 illegal turns or i drive over 40km more to get home legally

A whole raft of public policies was instituted at all levels of government in the U.S. after World War II to force American citizens to buy cars and to drive them for every trip, so it's about time that this country do more to give citizens greater choices and to end the monopolies of the car, oil, and highway lobbies.

"Zoning restrictions often require a separation between residential and commercial" - really? Can you even call it a city then? For me mixed functionality is one of the prerequisites for that. Ideally a few floors of shops, restaurants, schools - whatever and on top of that lots of floors with apartments. On top a park or football field, pool or whatever.
