The paths we travel are just as impactful to our human experience as the destinations to which they lead. How we consider and create the spaces we move through has the power to deeply improve the human experience. We spend so much time in the seemingly in-between – the spaces between our destinations, making it essential that we treat these spaces with the same attention and design intention as we do places.

Our linear systems of streets, highways and trails are arguably the largest part of the public realm – and the lack of design intention of these spaces may just be the greatest missed opportunity of our time. Using Path as Place as a concept for reframing the conversation around these in-between spaces will lead to design outcomes that change the fabric of the community for the better.
