My urban futures

Cars are omnipresent in our urban landscape, yet the corrosive impact of ubiquitous personal transportation on urban form and community is rarely appreciated. At the urban incubator of the Maison de l'innovation sociale I have been working on  a «community parking» concept which would permit the reappropriation of the public domain to serve functions more directly related to the common good. The «community parking» would concentrate car storage in fewer locations while offering space for other community services (polyvalent community spaces and outward facing services at street level, car and bike share options, vehicle charging areas, long-term storage options, etc.). Concentrating transportation services in fewer locations will offer greater flexibility for collective and active transportation options while also helping to develop a more effective and efficient service network. 


Zvi Leve is a transportation modelling expert whose interests focus on the linkages between transportation, land use, and sustainable development.  When he is not evaluating the implications of large-scale infrastructure projects and technological change, he can be found promoting active transportation and human-scaled cities. He is involved with numerous community groups dedicated to rethinking the role of transportation and the built environment in our lives.


Zvi Leve est un expert reconnu dans la modélisation des transports dont les intérêts se concentrent sur les liens entre le transport, l’aménagement et le développement durable. Quand il ne passe pas son temps à évaluer les répercussions des projets d'infrastructure à grande échelle, on le trouve à faire la promotion du transport actif et des villes à échelle humaine. Il s’investit dans de nombreux groupes communautaires dédiés à repenser le rôle du transport et de l'environnement bâti dans nos vies.
