  • 1. “Moscow Paths” Initiative “Paths” Network Fedor Novikov fedor.n@gmail.com +1.917.285.4438
  • 2. • Brief overview of Moscow • The case: spontaneous paths • “Moscow path” initiative • Ideas for future development of the project + Q&A Presentation plan
  • 3. • Brief overview of Moscow • The case: spontaneous paths • “Moscow path” initiative • Ideas for future development of the project + Q&A Presentation plan
  • 4. Moscow
  • 5. Low connectivity, concentration of activity in the center
  • 6. Dense metropolis with suburban topology
  • 7. • Brief overview of Moscow • The case: spontaneous paths • “Moscow path” initiative • Ideas for future development of the project + Q&A The case: paths
  • 8. The case: paths
  • 9. Forget-me-not type
  • 10. Sidewalk type
  • 11. Connector type
  • 12. Adjacent to parking type
  • 13. Adjacent to parking type Parked type
  • 14. They say, in North Korea people only turn at straight angles
  • 15. Recreational path
  • 16. Spontaneous paths in free-layout neighborhoods: Vilnyus
  • 17. Berlin
  • 18. Warsaw
  • 19. Brasilia :: paths as tribute to modernism source: http://discoveringurbanism.blogspot.com/
  • 20. “The smartest path”. Harvard
  • 21. • Scale of the problem • Ecology (paths contribute to dust in the air) • Transport (people tend to walk less and use cars more due to poor sidewalks condition) • Economic implications for local businesses and budget • Symptom of poor pedestrian network design skills • “Broken window” effect • Could only be solved at a city-wide level Why is that important?
  • 22. 1. Recultivated* * photo was taken May 2009, by mid June the path was once again in place How are paths dealt with in Moscow
  • 23. Fenced
  • 24. The very few examples of preservation
  • 25. ~ distance 300 feet Typical mistakes: lack of systematic approach
  • 26. <= width => poor pavement quality Typical mistakes
  • 27. Typical mistakes: corners
  • 28. Turns out, paths are not a problem, but rather a hint to planners
  • 29. Design case study
  • 30. Crossing Crossing ~ 60 feet + turns ~ 30 feet 50% increase in distance ~ design?
  • 31. “beautiful” vs functional source: http://zyalt.livejournal.com/143040.html
  • 32. Designing paths: shortest routes
  • 33. Designing paths: lowest costs
  • 34. overview of methodology developed by A. P. Romm, Phd since 1960s Entrance I II III How do we decide when to cut corners through grass?
  • 35. Real life example
  • 36. Designing paths: optimized network
  • 37. Designing optimized network
  • 38. Designing paths: optimized network (example #1)
  • 39. Designing paths: optimized network (example #2)
  • 40. Designing network with barriers
  • 41. Designing optimized neighborhood paths network
  • 42. Now let’s compare it to a real case
  • 43. • Brief overview of Moscow • The case: spontaneous paths • “Moscow path” initiative • Ideas for future development of the project + Q&A Presentation plan
  • 44. http://dorojki-msk.ru/English info online petition (313 Moscovites) paths map Major problem to be solved: yet no system that would maintain online community Project & Dorojki-Msk.ru
  • 45. Mass media attention
  • 46. Officials responded: “No, thanks”
  • 47. • Brief overview of Moscow • The case: spontaneous paths • “Moscow path” initiative • Ideas for future development of the project + Q&A Presentation plan
  • 48. Pedestrian infrastructure conditions
  • 49. Sidewalks?
  • 50. Public spaces
  • 51. Public spaces
  • 52. Access
  • 53. Access for disabled
  • 54. = Preserving paths + creating bicycle lanes
  • 55. Option: preserving paths + creating bicycle lanes = Preserving paths + creating bicycle lanes
  • 56. Dense metropolis with suburban topology
  • 57. Concentracion of business activity in the center + Poor road connectivity ~ sparse hierarchy
  • 58. moscow car park ‘86-’06 Daily traffic
  • 59. Sidewalks?
  • 60. Sidewalks?
  • 61. Buildings are separated from street
  • 62. Buildings are separated from the street
  • 63. Poor accessibility transforms into lack of retail or street activities
  • 64. - Create a system that would maintain online community - Restructure inner organization to become more open-sourced - Develop partnerships - Integrate georeferenced photo bank - Best practices & library project - Publish methodology - GPS tracking style app’s - Path design software Needed technical improvements
  • 65. - too few Moscow streets are truly livable and vibrant - many people supported the project and its expansion - almost no web-sites in Russian discuss livable streets From To only Moscow Network of cities (+english?) livable streets + Pedestrians networks + Bike networks only paths + Disabled accessibility + Public spaces quality + TOD Reasons & decision: project should broaden its outlook
  • 66. open source network for urban projects + blogs just paths disabled education articles cycling cycling architecture Scenario 2
  • 67. Dorojki-Msk.ru/English * * will be accessible by Jan, 1 2010 our partners Dorojki.msk@gmail.com Fedor Novikov, 1.917.285.4438 Thank you!
