A New Generation of Public Space

Metropolitan Trails are a new kind of public space.

These social platforms are designed to reconnect us to our living territories, and to include inhabitants and experts to a vital conversation on post-petroleum cities.

Transport infrastructures, tourist facilities, off-wall cultural centres, open-air schools—Metropolitan Trails are an international urban innovation, born in France and Europe.

Originating from the worlds of art and planning, urban hiking has now become a social phenomenon.
