Car parking in cities: immobility and infrastructure
Cars provide us with flexible mobility, freedom, comfort and experience of progress. But these aspects of automobility are based on cars in movement – a partial picture which misses the fact that usually they remain stationary. As such, they are problematic for drivers, create obstacles for people in public places and have to be managed, often at a great cost, as they take up large portion of urban space.

Breakfast Briefing: Why good neighbourhood design might be all about children
Research by ZCD Architects over the last few years has revealed the extent to which social use of external spaces can vary significantly between developments, depending on their layout. Most importantly, children's independent play may be at the heart of the success stories. The practice's most recent research, Neighbourhood Design: working with children towards a child friendly city, was carried out with children on an inner city estate in Hackney. It is already having an impact on the draft London plan, the new Housing Design Guidance for London and policies at a more local level.
