Experience Carfree Morocco. Getting lost in the maze of Morocco's medinas (medieval pedestrian cities) offers us a rare opportunity to immerse ourselves in the history of urban form, experiencing the past first-hand in the present. Through this visual exercise, we temporarily distance ourselves from contemporary urban design, giving us the perspective to recognize its many failings. In the process, we learn how a dense, compact urban habitat can be built without dependence on motorized or mechanized transport, while providing the necessary preconditions for a rich and vibrant public life.

The presentation is co-sponsored by Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition and the Peninsula Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition.
