Social Rivalries and Their Impact in the Form of Road Networks and Public Space. Historical Research

Modern cities are characterized of social and economic inequalities. The available space of the city streets is unequally distributed to the different users. Car users have managed to move in disproportionately more public space than pedestrians and everyday transportation is full of hostility to vulnerable users. Social rivalries in the history of the western European city have contributed not only to the form of today’s public space and road networks but to the users’ behaviour as well. Studying the past and analyzing the present are essential to establish a new perception for vulnerable and powerful road users in the sustainable city of tomorrow.
