Infographic |  Undergrad Fall 2013

This piece discusses the issue of designing cities around the vehicle rather than making them more “walkable”. Drawing stylistic inspiration from transportation signage and the NYC transit system, the infograph is broken into three parts. The first part shows statistical quantitative data of the commuting patterns in the United States. It also depicts a side by side comparison of “Walkable States” vs “Non Walkable States”. The second part delivers the health risks and effects caused by designing cities around the vehicle. Finally, the last part shows a hypothetical comparison of a typical commute to work by car versus walking and using public transportation.
