Who is allowed to shape our cities, and how do they do it? On November 28 we gathered at cafe Kiwi to watch Urbanized, a documentary exploring the design of cities and the ideas of the world's foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders, and thinkers.
Irakli Zhvania, architect and urban planner, introduced the documentary and afterwards discussed how we can drive the change we want by balancing housing, mobility, public space, civic engagement, economic development, and environmental policy. With our members we brought up the issues and strategies behind urban design and how we can utilize them to engineer our future Tbilisi.
"Iare Pekhit" presents you with a series of videos, to emphasize on the existing problems in Georgia, which create obstacles for pedestrians. This video shows the difficult conditions inherent in the movement of the baby carriage. These are: the low quality of sidewalks, narrow sidewalks, the lack of or insufficiency of ramps at building entries, on sidewalks, in underground passes. Sidewalks crowded with cars, inaccessible entrances to the parks and much more.Similar conditions are faced by the disabled who have to use a wheelchair as a replacement for walking.
