    An international project

    Tunnels, footbridges, escalators, funiculars—passages of all kinds—are essential links in the urban fabric and a source of urban character. Requiring little investment, they should be a natural part of any large development project, since they can repair the fractures wrought by transit infrastructures and 20th-Century zoning practices.

    Since 2013, IVM has led a collective effort with experts and partner cities from many countries: From Algiers to Montevideo, from Barcelona to Shanghai and Toronto, from Ouagadougou and Cotonou to São Paulo, Tours, Tunis, Valparaiso… students, filmmakers, artists, residents, decision-makers, city technicians, researchers and practitioners of architecture and urban design, have made the effort to think about these little places of movement.
