Description: The Making Cities Livable movement promotes appropriate human scale architecture, mixed-use housing and retail, and a compact urban fabric of blocks, streets and squares, and outdoor venues. The goal is to create “cities of short distances” where balanced transportation planning makes possible commuting via pedestrian networks, bicycle networks, traffic quietened streets, and public transportation.
