Adaptive Streets

Adaptive Streets: Strategies for Transforming the Urban Right-of-Way is an illustrated handbook to inspire and guide citizens, planners and officials to re-imagine how our streets can be adapted to increase utility and delight as well as enhance human and environmental health. The book presents a collection of strategies, demonstrating how they can be implemented in prototypical streets. Adaptive Streets can be used as a community empowerment tool to create new visions that transform the right-of-way.

Developed by Mike Schwindeller and Jordan Lewis under the guidance of Professor Rottle, Gehl Architects, Schulze + Grassov, and Seattle DOT’s Public Space Program, the project won a 2014 national student award from the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA).
