Passport: Explainig urbanism

Explainig Urbanism to a 5 years-old girl.

I tried to explain to my 5 years-old daugther what’s urbanism and then asked her to do a draw about it. We talked about what is a city for her, what is in it and so on. After that I explained that there are some people that think and decide how to put the streets and the squares and the traffic lights and the trash cans… she said she’s very happy that someone decide to do a square with trees very close to our house where she can play.

This project is part of Passport an international traveling book with drawings and artprojects from urbanists, architects and artists from allover the world. It is traveling at this moment arround the world collecting inspirations about urbanism and the city.
