For over seventy years, private cars have dominated public space in German cities. In the Manifest der freien Straße, a creative-academic alliance fundamentally challenges this status quo, highlighting the forgotten and unrecognized characteristics of streets and the opportunities they present. In doing so, the alliance focuses on a communal spatial resource that we, in times of climate change, digitalization, and social inequality, urgently need to learn to use differently.
Through images, comics, graphics, and succinct scientific insights, the Free Street Manifesto points the way to a future full of exciting possibilities—and demonstrates that our streets should be more than just a route from A to B.
