Desire Paths & Great Design (at G8)


One of the unexpected benefits of this talk is people have begun sending me photo’s they’ve spotted from Desire Paths around the world, I’ll paste a few in here periodically:


Brighton Train Station (sent to me by @avangelist)

All those busy commuters show the small shrub some love:

Williams College (sent to me by @jacquimiller)

They accepted the Desire Path and laid a diagonal concrete path -as you can see the students seem happy – nice work:

Imperial College in London just reacted to a Desire Path in a similar way (spotted by Ben Miles):

It’s interesting that Universities / Colleges seem to be doing the best job of this – I guess they’re more flexible than your average council…

Please keep them coming!!
