Street Plans Principal Mike Lydon interviewed in new Australian publication

The New South Wales (NSW) Architects Registration Board recently released a new publication titled Towards The Public Interest: the role of architects and citizens in making the city for the common good. As part of the publication, Street Plans’ Principal Mike Lydon shared his thoughts about Tactical Urbanism and its ability to make citizen participation more accessible.

He also talks about Street Plans’ practice as both an advocacy and planning firm: “We call ourselves a planning, design and research advocacy firm. My partner, Tony, and I, both come at this work as advocates for better cities, first…We are going to be coming at projects where we don’t think adding more pollution, and car traffic and congestion and danger in our streets is a good thing. We’re the wrong firm to hire if you want to go in that direction.”
