Clean yards and parks without desire paths and dirty lawns - this can be done by designing comfortable pedestrian road network
Miles of fences and annual repairs of desire paths - this can be avoided by making paved paths in the places where pedestrians need them
Planning good pedestrian road network is tedious. We can save your time and do that for you!
We developed computer modelling algorithms that predict how pedestrians move, so we can quickly and easily find planning mistakes in your road networks
Typical situation is when pedestrian paths are inconvenient and people start walking on the grass and making desire paths
This can be fixed by planning road network carefully, thinking about pedestrian needs. In this case they will keep to paved roads
Caring for pedestrian comfort can be advertised as a feature of your project
Solving a common beautification problem can promote your project among rivals
Kilometers of anti-pedestrian fences cost a lot
This money can be saved if road network is correctly planned
Fixing spoiled lawns and repairing desire path requires repeated spendings
No paths to be fixed if pedestrians never walk on lawns
Using computer modelling algorithms we will predict the places in your project where desire paths will appear
We may find mistakes in your public space project. Will show you places where pedestrians will stomp the grass and spoil the beautification
We will send you a report with all mistakes listed, together with explanations and photos of similar places
We may build a road network from scratch. We will make it comfortable for pedestrians and optimal for construction, without any surplus roads
We may create several variants with different positions of key locations
Our suggestions are based on scientific researches of pedestrian psychology
We may do extra analysis: isochrone maps, pedestrian flow heatmaps, optimal places for street crossings
Such analysis may be used, for example, for choosing optimal location with good pedestrian flow for commercial services
We process your area plan and find places where pedestrians will walk on grass
Time: 10+ working days (depending on area size)
Price: Starting from 800$
Free for public non-profit organizations
We create entire pedestrian road network for your project from scratch
Time: 15+ working days
Price: on request, depending on area size and available data, about 1000$ for a 5 Ha area
You perform pedestrian modelling all by yourself in our free modelling software
We can provide assistance on preparing the data or interpreting the results for extra price
Time: depends on you
Price: using our software is free, paid assistance and support are available on request
Please check our blog (in Russian) for examples of simulation for various yard and park projects:
... and there are many more.
Using the recommendations of the algorithm (the scheme in the middle) designers could have avoided design flaws which turned lawns into mud marshes, as can be seen in the photo to the right.
on the design of convenient pedestrian networks
We enjoy sharing our experience and talking about proper design of path networks.
During a 1.5-hour lecture we can tell you about general principles, most common problems in pedestrian network planning and ways to avoid them..
This will help students avoid most common problems and make much more comfortable parks and courtyards..
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested!
We cooperate with communities of activists and individual citizens who carry out civil control of city territory improvement projects..
We hold lectures for students of town-planning and architectural institutions of St. Petersburg.
We provide services to commercial design offices that would like to improve the quality of their projects.
Contact us and we will tell you how to make your projects better!
