Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Pedestrian wayfinding signage in Thessaloniki is adding information of the calorie burning value of walking

That's pretty creative.  And something that should be done for every center city wayfinding system.

A number of years ago, I wrote an article on culture-based revitalization in Thessaloniki for the Europe in Baltimore program sponsored by the EU National Institutes of Culture Washington Chapter.

-- "Thessaloniki: Regeneration as an ongoing process"

And in the Bangkok Metro system, they have painted similar information on stairway risers.

Again, a good idea that needs to be implemented in more public places as a way to promote healthy mobility behaviors.
