What Is a Street? 10 Cities Explored Through Street Films
What is a street? More than just a path or route for vehicles and goods, and a piece of infrastructure potentially for pedestrians and cyclists and other non-motorised forms of transport, a street can play diverse roles in different cities and communities. More so, in Cape Town, where spatial segregation and under-investment in streets in large parts of the city has resulted in vastly different neighbourhood and street conditions, the human experience often demands little more than basic safety. Some would go as far as describing streets as the basic unit of a city or urban experience, whether by foot or in a vehicle.
