Beyond Mobility: Planning Cities for People and Places by Robert Cervero
English | PDF | 2018 | 298 Pages | ISBN : 1610918347 | 183.50 MB

This volume is about prioritizing the needs and aspirations of people and the creation of great places. This is as important, if not more important, than expediting movement. A stronger focus on accessibility and place creates better communities, environments, and economies. Rethinking how projects are planned and designed in cities and suburbs needs to occur at multiple geographic scales, from micro-designs (such as parklets), corridors (such as road-diets), and city-regions (such as an urban growth boundary). It can involve both software (a shift in policy) and hardware (a physical transformation). Moving beyond mobility must also be socially inclusive, a significant challenge in light of the price increases that typically result from creating higher quality urban spaces.

Designing for People

Designing for People by Henry Drefuss

DREYFUSS is completely right when he talks about the responsibility of industrial design in Designing for People, which I now consider a classic and a must-read for every businessperson who cares about quality. He wrote about the conceptual framework for this book in the Harvard Business Review in 1950, over fifty years ago, and the book was first published in 1955. Think of it: His thesis was given to business, and to all of us, that long ago and we still don’t know the value of industrial design. His message was simple: Every point of contact between what is designed, and the customer/user, must be positive, a delight—it must make us happier.

I agree with what Dreyfuss writes about how good design gives to the user self-assurance, efficiency, and satisfaction. But he doesn’t stop there—he emphasizes how industrial designers need to understand the producer’s viewpoint as well. The republication of this classic gives us all the opportunity to understand and utilize the power of industrial design.

Cities across the globe have been designed with a primary goal of moving people around quickly—and the costs are becoming ever more apparent. The consequences are measured in smoggy air basins, sprawling suburbs, unsafe pedestrian environments, and despite hundreds of billions of dollars in investments, a failure to stem traffic congestion.
