More adaptable roads

The Dynamic Street, an installation in Toronto, features a series of?hexagonal modular pavers which can be picked up and replaced to swiftly change the function of the road without creating disruptions on the street.?The project uses the different patterns that can be created on the hexagonal grid as well as the integration of lights into individual pavers. Each paver can also potentially host a plug and play element ? that is, vertical structures such as poles, bollards or even basketball?hoops. ? Imagine a city street, nestled between buildings with mostly foot and bicycle traffic. During the morning and evening hours, there might be a steady stream of commuters heading to work. In the middle of the day and the evening, families might use the street as a play space. And on the weekend, the street could be cleared for a party or a basketball game. ? https://www.curbed.com/2018/8/6/17654122/carlo-ratti-sidewalk-labs-dynamic-street
