Streetlights, bus shelters, bike racks, kiosks, signage, benches, bike share, EV charging, and parking kiosks can all improve the public realm, but implementation often lacks coordination.

The ways in which we organize, plan for, and connect these objects is vital to making our streets safe, navigable, and clutter-free. How can we avoid an accumulation of abandoned and outdated infrastructure, and instead ensure that new technology and street furniture create welcoming and useful public space?
