This year’s ETH-EiABC student exchange workshop addresses one of the pressing challenges in contemporary Addis Ababa: how to make pedestrian mobility safer, more inclusive, and equitable in a rapidly developing, car-oriented urban environment. From August 25 to September 6 2014, an interdisciplinary group of twenty Bachelor, Master and PhD students from EiABC and ETH Zurich are exploring new concepts, strategies and designs for improving pedestrian mobility from a bottom-up perspective. Under the assumption that such an approach could embrace the pedestrians’ everyday economic and social activities in a more integrative manner, the workshop aims at providing a basis for straight for wardly applicable ideas that would counteract the realities of implemented transportation infrastructure.
