Better traffic filters

A set of speculative proposals for alternative design of the traffic filters currently on trial across the UK, which let people through whilst limiting motor through-traffic. The controversial filters, usually in the form of a wooden planter, look visually like they are "blocking" the road despite in fact opening it up for safer, more attractive walking and cycling. These proposals aim highlight this by re-imagining the filters as sculptural gateways which welcome people in.
