This is how you promote walkability. 

ClimateWorks is a San Francisco based foundation whose mission is to support public policies that prevent dangerous climate change and promote global prosperity. This infographic about walkable neighbourhoods is part of a document called Planning Cities for People, which was prepared for the Chinese government. The document, which contains 8 research-based recommendations that lead to prosperous, low-carbon urban areas, uses richly illustrated maps and diagrams to present examples of street-grids that promote walking, prioritize bicycle networks, create mixed-use neighborhoods and support high-quality transit.

"There was a time when I experienced architecture without thinking about it. Sometimes I can almost feel a particular door handle in my hand, a piece of metal shaped like the back of a spoon. I used to take hold of it when I went into my aunt’s garden. That door handle still seems to me like a special sign of entry into a world of different moods and smells. I remember the sound of the gravel under my feet, the soft gleam of the waxed oak staircase, I can hear the heavy front door closing behind me as I walk along the dark corridor and enter the kitchen, the only really brightly lit room in the house." - Peter Zumthor

The Urban Treehouse - Berlin, Germany

Set in a 650 sqm garden at the edge of Grunewald Forest, yet close enough to the hectic urban life of Berlin, lies The Urban Treehouse, a very special place consisting of two tree-shaped houses perched 4 meters off the ground level. Designed by Andreas Wenning from Baumraum - a leading architecture firm specialized in treehouses, the two innovative accommodation modules come with clean, cutting-edge design and bright, contemporary interiors appointed with all modern luxuries, from fully-equipped bathrooms and kitchenettes to plasma TVs and fresh, versatile furnishings.
