Abstract

Walking has always been part of daily routines but nowadays it has a meaning more inclusive and less subjective. Walking is a purely practical action, a sustainable and ecological way of movement and it is especially Wanderlust, pleasure and enjoyment of places, sometimes is transgressive act and affirmation of freedom. People walk more and more to make individual or collective experience of pleasure, whether intentionally or unconsciously. People walk to produce both internal and external relationships, with themselves, with other people or with a place. The general economic and environmental crisis besides forces us to plan sustainable mobility for the future, in which “walking” will undoubtedly plays a central role. However, pedestrian mobility still has undiscovered potential for designers who have the task to plan and build adequate environments. In recent decades, much research was conducted on mobility, especially on the relationship between infrastructure (such as roads and railways) and the landscape, but little has been done on pedestrian mobility infrastructures and the contemporary landscape. Pedestrian mobility planning can be considered as a landscape strategy i.e. a holistic design discipline that involves not only spatial problems, but also environmental, cultural and social issues.
