Walking Together

Humans have been walking for thousands of years. Since man started to walk, he has discovered its therapeutic ability to calm one’s emotion, to regulate blood circulation and maintain balance for the body. It is a journey, an activity enjoyed in isolation or in fellowship with friends and family.

As cities grew into urban settlements, the availability of open urban spaces has been threatened by the necessity of commercial activity. The increasing demand for services and goods resulted in the Industrial Revolution. And as earnings and production was the focus, it wiped out the remaining open space in major cities in Europe. As the cities’ greed for more economic prosperity, people’s health and well-being were compromised. Only the rich upper class could afford to have gardens and so the disappearance of the Urban Public Space. With the mass production of cars, people began to walk less and do “office” jobs – managing production.
