Berlin on the Go: Towards a Pedestrian Friendly City

The exhibition’s info panels highlight various projects across Berlin’s 12 Districts implemented by the City to increase the safety and quality of life of pedestrians. Berlin has put forward a wide variety of incentives to encourage walking, from wider sidewalks, to more short cuts and diagonal crossings. The exhibition demonstrates Berlin’s push to create more green spaces, public squares and pedestrian zones for residents to enjoy and relax together.

By implementing these measures, Berlin is creating a more pleasant as well as a safer environment for all citizens – pedestrians, cyclists and public-transit users – and thus encouraging even more people to choose these options as a valuable, enjoyable, cheap and environmentally friendly means of transport.

A travelling exhibit by FUSS.e.V, Goethe-Institut Montreal, and the Senate Department of Urban Development in Berlin. Presented in collaboration with Goethe-Institut Toronto as part of their series The Future of Mobility 2012.

To complement Berlin on the Go, last year’s Walkabilityexhibition has been remounted in the space as well. Based on the work of Paul Hess, Associate Professor in the University of Toronto’s Department of Geography and Program in Planning, with Jane’s Walk executive director Jane Farrow, photographer Katherine Childs, and graphic designer Mia Hunt, this show examines aspects of the poor walking conditions in Toronto’s high-rise neighbourhoods, and what could be done to remedy them.
