Back to the Future: Amsterdam's return to cycling

Yesterday's post originated in my ongoing conversations on urban evolution with my girlfriend Cornelia, who just completed her MSc (urban planning) at the University of Amsterdam.

Luckily for all of you, I am not the only one paying attention to Cornelia's research, which was just covered by Fast Company. The photos below demonstrate a key part of her thesis, i.e., that Amsterdam was very much a "car centric" city in the 60s and 70s, before popular rebellion led to a change in priorities in favor of people, not cars.

To read more about her research and these photos, go here.

Check out her LinkedIn page if you want to discuss her work or collaboration.
